Houston TranStar cameras captured all lanes of the freeway moving with drivers again just after 2 p.m. Friday.
That wasn't the case more than an hour earlier when the crash happened on the freeway at Bissonnet.
By 2:15 p.m., a couple of ramps were still closed.
Police did not immediately give information on injuries.
