Traffic grows near IAH after concrete mixer overturns on North Beltway
It took crews hours to upright the truck and clean up the mess left behind, causing major delays for drivers headed to IAH.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Drivers traveling to Bush Intercontinental Airport Thursday morning were faced with major delays thanks to a hazmat spill on the North Sam Houston Parkway.

A concrete mixer overturned on the North Beltway 8 eastbound feeder before JFK Boulevard around 5 a.m.

All lanes of the Beltway were closed following the crash. It didn't completely open until around 11:18 a.m.

Crews at the scene worked for hours to upright the truck and clean up the mess left behind.

The right shoulder was still blocked at 11:30 a.m., but all lanes of traffic were flowing.

It was unclear what exactly led up to the crash or if any injuries were reported.
