Construction truck crashes into massive hole in west Houston

The driver of the truck was able to get out on his own and was then taken to the hospital for treatment.

HOUSTON — A truck that hauls construction containers drove through a construction site and crashed into a massive hole in the ground on Eldridge Parkway near the Katy Freeway, Houston police said.

According to authorities, the driver of the truck swerved to avoid another vehicle before crashing through construction barriers and into the hole.

The workspace was clear because workers were in another area, so no one else was injured.

The driver was able to climb out of the hole but still needed to be taken to an area hospital for treatment.

The container on the truck was empty at the time of the crash.
