If your Friday evening plans include heading west toward I-45 north on I-10, you'll want to seriously rethink them. An early-afternoon traffic accident involving a big rig resulted in a large hole in the middle of the freeway, according to chron.com.
There's no word yet on how long it will be before everything is patched up and the road is safe to travel, but judging by the size of the hole in this Instagram photo, it's going to be awhile. Plan accordingly.
