Officials with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) say an 18-wheeler hauling eggs slammed into the pillar of the bridge at Malcom X Boulevard. The crash ripped the trailer apart and sent some 30,000 pounds of eggs spilling onto the roadway.

The accident, at the I-45 interchange, caused the closure of the westbound lanes of I-30 near downtown. In addition to dealing with the eggs and a possible fuel leak, TxDOT crews worked to inspect any damage to the bridge. Traffic was being rerouted off at the I-45 exit.
