MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - Southbound traffic was backed up for miles on I-35 near Bruceville-Eddy when a trailer carrying an oversized load broke in half just before noon on Monday.

Bruceville-Eddy Police say part of the trailer hauling a large crane failed.

The driver of the rig had almost gotten off the highway, but one lane was blocked for about two hours.

Wreckers had to be used to lift the trailer in order to move it, and that required both southbound lanes to be shut down.
