HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Westbound lanes of Interstate 10 at the San Jacinto River were reopened Monday evening after they were closed for hours due to an 18-wheeler crash.

Crews were working to not only clear the wreckage but also clean a diesel spill from the crash.

The Texas Department of Transportation later tweeted at 6:16 p.m. that lanes were reopened.
