According to police, they responded to a call at 6:27 a.m. of the 18-wheeler’s trailer stuck on a curved divider at the intersection of the I-35 southbound service road and East William Cannon Drive.

Authorities say due to the construction in the area, and since the 18-wheeler’s load is heavy and high centered, a specialized tow truck needed to be brought in.

APD re-opened the intersection before 8 a.m.

This is a developing story. KXAN will update it with more information.
