HOUSTON -– An accident involving a big rig cab that was being towed briefly closed all inbound lanes of the East Freeway early Tuesday morning.

The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. near the exit for Waco.

Authorities said a big rig was transporting three other big rigs when the chain holding the back one came loose or broke, causing the last truck to flip onto its side.

The freeway was closed until 3 a.m. for the cleanup.

No injuries were reported.
