HOUSTON — The top of an 18-wheeler was completely torn off after the driver drove underneath a bridge near downtown Houston, officials said.

The cause of the accident is still being investigated and the driver is not facing any charges. Investigators at the scene said it doesn’t appear the truck was above height regulations.

No one was injured.
