Semi drives off road, hangs over busy highway


An 18-wheeler stops traffic after it drives off the road and gets stuck on a guardrail Tuesday morning. The one-truck accident caused traffic to slow down temporarily near the Highway 6 and Highway 84 access roads. 

The truck driver says the accident happened at about 9:30 a.m. on the Highway 84 overpass in Waco.

The female driver of an 18-wheeler tried to turn left onto the Highway 6 access road when she says another driver cut her off. She then swerved and tried to correct herself, but her truck got stuck on the guardrail. 

The back wheels of the truck stayed suspended over Highway 84 for about 30 minutes before a tow service came to help.

Waco and Woodway police, along with TxDot officials, were called to the scene to assist. No one was hurt and the truck suffered some minor damage.
