As a result, Interstate 10 was partially shut down westbound at Waco Street. The accident is now clear.

Authorities are expecting the situation to continue until about 3:30pm while they clear that vehicle from the roadway.

There are no reported injuries.

The bridges are now being inspected for safety by the Texas Department of Transportation.
