HOUSTON,TX - Everyone complains about heavy traffic in Houston, but an 18-wheeler falling onto an interstate, that's cause for some real heavy traffic.

Get a load of this, the 610 north loop Wednesday morning was a complete mess.

A big rig on the Eastex freeway fell from US 59 down onto the inbound lanes of 610 North.

What's even more shocking, no other cars were hit.

And the driver of the big rig miraculously made it out of the crazy wreck alive.

Still no official word on what caused the accident, but US 59 was still closed in both directions at six o'clock in the evening.
