NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas — Crews in New Braunfels are spending much of Saturday morning cleaning up a rollover accident that resulted in a large number of mason jars spilling across I-35.
New Braunfels Police were called out to an 18-wheeler rollover accident on I-35 in the area of Hwy 46 South around 8:30 a.m. Saturday.
According to a spokesperson with NBPD, the 18-wheeler was hauling empty mason jars when the crash occurred.
One person was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
At one point, the cab of the 18-wheeler caught fire as well but was quickly extinguished.
A post on social media from the department stated that the 18-wheeler fell across the center barrier, causing the trailer to split in half. The accident also knocked over a large light pole.
Northbound I-35 was closed as a result with traffic being diverted off the highway at the Guadalupe River turnaround as crews worked to clean up the area.
