A man is in the hospital in critical condition after crashing into steel beams that were sticking out of the flatbed trailer of an 18-wheeler.
It happened around 12:45 a.m. Wednesday on F.M. 529 and Paddock Bend in northwest Harris County.
The SUV the man was driving had its top peeled off by the beams.
The 25-year old driver was struck in the head and taken to the hospital.
The 18-wheeler driver was not hurt.
Truck enforcement officers are investigating if the 18-wheeler's load was legal.
