HOUSTON—An 18-wheeler carrying a load of roofing material clipped a northwest Houston ditch, flipping its trailer early Friday morning.

The incident occurred around 3:45 a.m. on Taylor Road at Wright Road, just off the Northwest Freeway.

According to Houston police, the truck’s driver was backing into a parking lot when the trailer’s back wheels went into the ditch. This caused the load to twist onto its side.

Officials said no fuel leak was reported, and there were no injuries in the accident.

Taylor Road was briefly closed in both directions for the cleanup.
