A driver in northwest Houston is fortunate she wasn't hurt after her vehicle was nearly tipped over by an 18-wheeler. It happened this morning on the feeder road of Highway 290 at TC. Jester. The car wound up stuck on two wheels, pinned between the curb and the big rig.

A witness says the truck was stalled in a u-turn lane, partially blocking the road. One car was able to squeeze by, but just as the red car tried to do the same, the truck started moving and pinned the vehicle.

Emergency crews were called out. The car's driver got out and is said to be OK.

Police are talking to both drivers and were working to remove the vehicles.
