Car roof sheered off after woman slams into 18-wheeler

HOUSTON, TX – A woman is lucky to be alive after the car she was driving slammed into an 18-wheeler. The accident happened early Wednesday morning at Dixie Farm Road and I45.

Houston police say an 18-wheeler was making a u-turn on Dixie Farm and was spread across all the lanes. The driver of the Altima didn’t see it and slammed right into it, trapping her underneath. Another driver saw the whole thing happened and stopped to help. The woman was unconscious and bleeding a little, but authorities say her injuries were minor.

An open bottle was also found in the car, so naturally police suspect alcohol may have been a factor.
