A trip to the repair shop awaits several Houston drivers after cars hit part of an 18-wheeler while driving on the Southwest Freeway. Around 11pm last night, a drive shaft fell off a big rig on the northbound lanes of 59 near Shepherd. Cars tried to swerve around it, but some motorists hit the chunk of metal, causing flat tires and a line of cars waiting for tow trucks.

Houston police came out and helped pick up the debris. No one was hurt.
