Concrete beam falls off truck on High Five ramp

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS - The North Dallas High Five interchange remained partially closed Thursday morning because of an evening accident involving and 18-wheeler.

Dallas police said the truck overturned just after 7 p.m. on the westbound Interstate 635 ramp to northbound Central Expressway.

The driver only suffered minor injuries and no other vehicles were involved, but the cleanup was a challenge.

According to state records, the truck was carrying a 150,000 pound concrete beam. Crews with a jackhammer had to break it up before removing it.

One lane on the ramp was reopened around 7 a.m., but cleanup is expected to last until around 2 p.m.
