HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A major crash on the West Loop Friday morning left at least two cars with major damage and a crane truck without one of its large wheels.

It wasn't exactly clear what happened but video from SkyEye showed a large tire resting against the divider on the freeway near Old Katy Road. It wasn't known whether the tire actually came off the truck prior to the crash, despite earlier claims.
