A crash on Interstate 45 caused a major traffic jam near The Woodlands last night.

It happened in the northbound lanes of I-45 near Highway 242.

Houston Transtar Jam Cams showed the traffic at a snarl as crews worked to upright an overturned tractor trailer that struck a car.

The driver's son tells Eyewitness News that his father suffered a crushed leg after he was pinned. He was reportedly taken to a hospital in Conroe, then transferred to Ben Taub General Hospital in unknown condition.
