According to Houston Transtar, the crash was first reported on the I-610 North Loop westbound at the I-45 North Freeway at 5:10 a.m.

The right lane and exit ramp are closed as crews work to upright the 18-wheeler and clean up the mess.

At one point, backups stretched over five miles.

It’s unclear what led up to the crash or if any injuries were reported.

Drivers can take the I-610 East Loop to I-10 as an alternate route.
