A big rig wreck blocked a freeway connector ramp in southeast Houston for hours Thursday afternoon. The crash happened on the ramp connecting the Gulf Freeway inbound to the eastbound loop at about 11am. Crews were being cautious with the accident because according to a placard on the tanker truck, it was hauling sulfuric acid. Thankfully none of the liquid spilled.

Firefighters had to pull the pinned driver out of the truck. He didn't appear to be seriously injured.
