CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A single-vehicle accident on southbound Highway 181, on the North Beach side of the Harbor Bridge, had traffic backed up just after 2 p.m. Friday.

According to police, the driver of a black truck was heading southbound when he struck a barricade and flipped his vehicle. The impact was so hard that the barricade actually moved, and caused some concrete to fly into northbound lanes of traffic.

The driver of the truck was taken to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital where he was stabilized. Police believe he may have been under the influence.

In total, traffic was affected for nearly two hours.
