PASADENA, Texas (KTRK) -- All lanes of SH-225 have reopened at the Beltway after a crash involving a commercial vehicle caused a hazmat spill on Wednesday morning.

The two-vehicle crash was reported just before 8 a.m. in the eastbound lanes of SH-225.

All mainlanes were shut down in both directions but reopened by about 12:25 p.m., according to a tweet from TxDOT.
