A big rig became a road hazard when it crashed into an overpass in north Houston overnight.

The 18-wheeler was trying to make a U-turn under the 610 Loop eastbound at the Hardy Toll Road around 10pm Friday when it slammed into the overpass.

It turns out the trailer was too tall to fit.

The accident shut down the U-turn lane for hours and damaged the trailer, but the driver wasn't hurt.

At last check, there was no word on whether he'll face charges.
