Street sweeper rear-ended by alleged drunk driver

HOUSTON

Authorities closed down all eastbound lanes of the North Loop at Ella Boulevard for nearly an hour to clear the crash around 11pm.

No one was hurt. The street-sweeping truck has a cushion deflector protection mechanism to protect it from accidents such as these.

The driver of the SUV was arrested for a possible DWI after failing a sobriety test.
