HOUSTON -

A serious traffic situation has damaged a bridge in north Houston.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) says a truck with an oversized load hit the overpass at Beltway 8 and Aldine Westfield.

From Sky 2, you can see the two large spools still sitting there. TxDOT said the truck hit the overpass, causing some of the concrete to crumble.

One westbound lane of the Beltway is closed. And Aldine Westfield was shut down for several hours as TXDOT examined the damage.

Clearance on the bridge is 15ft. 7in. and the load was about 16ft tall.
