There's a Fireball Near the 290/I-10 Split...So You Might Want to Avoid It

If you're about to take 290 into town this morning...well, don't.

It's not clear yet exactly what happened, but there appears to be a truck billowing flames near the I-10 interchange. As of 9:30 a.m., it looked like all inbound lanes on 290 were closed.

According to Houston Transtar, there were two vehicles involved, but we don't know much more than that at this point.

Needless to say, you might want to find a detour for your mourning morning commute.
