Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Sometimes pictures say a whole lot more than words. Especially when you have photos of a fiery car wreck that the cops are still investigating and don't have much info yet to share.

These photos, taken early Monday morning, show a truck moments after it exploded, scorching flames and debris erupting into the sky as enormous plumes of thick, black smoke billow upwards.

A Houston Police spokesman says the accident happened at about 10:45 a.m. today and involved an 18-wheeler along Interstate 10 near Studemont.

Other than that, police say, not much is known as traffic officers continue to investigate. Miraculously, no injuries were reported.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
