Driver injured after slamming into big rig

HOUSTON

It happened at the Gulf Freeway feeder road at Astoria in southeast Houston. The driver crashed at a high rate of speed right into the back of an 18-wheeler. The front of the truck was crumbled into a pile of twisted metal.

The driver was the only one in the truck at the time and amazingly he suffered only non-life threatening injuries.

He was transported to a hospital by ambulance.
