Crews were widening the road and had poured concrete down, which the driver of this vehicle apparently didn't notice.

Traffic jams are nothing unusual during the morning rush, but one logjam Tuesday morning in the Upper Kirby area wasn't your typical traffic tie-up.

A driver who was trying to make a U-turn on Kirby near the Southwest Freeway apparently didn't notice newly-poured concrete and drove right into it. Crews in the area had been widening the road and laid new concrete over sewer lines.

The stuck car caused a traffic mess in the already-congested area for about half an hour. Crews brought in a flatbed tow truck to pull the car out.
