HOUSTON – All mainlanes reopened on I-10 westbound at I-45 north after an 18-wheeler overturned and lost its load Saturday morning. 

The hazmat team was called to scene around 2:30 a.m. to clean up scrap metal that was be hauled in the bed of the 18-wheeler. 

Officials said the big rig somehow lost control and tipped over onto the highway spilling all the metal across the road.
