18 WHEELER ROLLS OVER ON I-45

Just after 1 a.m., a Montgomery County Deputy was at the Shell station at SH 242 and I-45 on a traffic stop when he heard a crash on the other side of the trees. He went to investigate and found an 18-wheeler owned by La Lebra of Houston on its side with a lost load of steel rebar. He found the driver still inside the cab standing up and appeared ok. Woodlands and Needham Fire responded and were able to extricate the driver who has minor injuries. He was not transported to the hospital. Milstead Heavy Duty arrived on the scene to right the truck along with Hazmat International to clean the oil that spilled on the roadway from a broken oil pan. DPS is investigating the crash. Early reports are the driver of the truck was westbound on SH 242. As he approached I-45 he turned northbound. That is when the truck rolled and traveled across 3 lanes of traffic before coming to rest. I-45 northbound feeder remains closed at 3 am as crews attempt to clear the truck, oil, and steel from the roadway.
