18-Wheeler Overturns on Hwy 77

An early morning accident Tuesday closed the northbound lanes of the overpass at Highway 77 and County Road 44.  The Robstown Police Department said an 18-Wheeler struck the wall of the Highway 77 overpass and flipped on its side around 2 a.m.

The rig was severely damaged, however the driver managed to escape with only minor injuries.  It took crews several hours to clear the scene because a large amount of diesel fuel was spilled.  The cause of the accident is unknown; however roads were slick from overnight rain.
