Shoes on freeway cause traffic trouble

Just about anything can cause a traffic problem in Houston. But Wednesday afternoon, something really unusual was stopping traffic -- shoes. Just after 1pm, Transtar started getting reports of shoes on the outbound lanes of the Southwest Freeway near Bellaire in southwest Houston. Cleaning crews were sent to pick up the shoes, which appeared to be used.

It's believed the shoes might have accidentally fallen from a vehicle.
