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.
