Whatever You Do, Don't Drive on 610 Near 59 South Today!

If you were planning on taking a trip to the Galleria today, you might want to rethink those plans. An oil tanker turned over on 610 South at 59 and it has closed the entire freeway down. Reports are suggesting one of the busiest interchanges in the city could be closed ALL DAY. Yikes.

In recent days, this intersection was revealed to be, to the surprise of no one, the most accident-prone in the city and one of the worst in the state. It's a brutal bastard of an interchange, and anyone who has had to drive it even once wishes they hadn't.

Today, that will only be made worse.

This particular wreck happened just before 6 a.m. this morning. Hey, perfect timing! The truck was reportedly carrying flammable fuel of some kind, and HAZMAT teams were on the scene quickly to start mopping up the mess.

There have been no reports as yet with regard to injuries or what caused the accident.
