HOUSTON -- An 18-wheeler flipped onto its side while taking the connecting ramp from the Eastex Freeway to I-10 East late Wednesday morning.

The crash caused a small grass fire which was quickly put out. The crash also momentarily closed I-10 eastbound.

As of 12:30 p.m. officials were still working to clean up a fuel spill and move the truck out of the way. The southbound ramp from 59 to I-10 remained blocked.
