HOUSTON -- It was a sight that had drivers pulling over left and right.

Two giant spools spilled onto the road and one was lodged in the underpass of Beltway 8 at Aldine-Westfield Road.

Billy Vest is a truck driver himself and couldn't believe his eyes.

This right here is absolutely mind boggling, Vest said. You see how high that is -- anybody with common sense knows you can't go anywhere like that.

The driver of the rig works for a company called C&D Diversified out of Waller and admits he made a mistake. With his police escorts, he went off the assigned route because he said he was running late.
