It happened on North McCarty near the North Loop. Investigators say the big rig was getting ready to make a left turn when a man not paying attention hit him. Heavy duty rescue crews had to come out to untangle the crushed SUV from the truck.

Amazingly, neither driver had to be taken to the hospital.
