Conroe Police are still on the scene of the major accident on I-45 at River Plantation that closed I-45. At this time one left and one left shoulder are open. Traffic is backed up from Lake Woodlands. Avoid I-45.
One person had to be cut out of a box truck that slammed into an 18-wheeler that was parked on the side of the road. The forc was so great that it pushed the 18-wheeler forward and ripped his trailer axles out. Diesel is on the ground and Masters Environmental is on the scene cleaning that.
It could be 2pm before the scene clears.
Also southbound is backed to South Loop 336 as rubberneckers slow to look at the scene. One 18 wheeler driver actually stopped in the moving lanes to take photos.
