18-wheeler accident shuts down SH 105 for hours

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 4:26pm

A fiery accident in Grimes County early Friday morning left State Highway 105 shut down for most of the day.

The accident happened on the SH 105 bridge near the Grimes-Washington County line just before 8:00 Friday morning.

We're told an 18-wheeler crashed and then caught fire from the diesel it was carrying.

It took crews most of the day to clean up the wreckage and a HAZMAT team was called to clean up the diesel.

TxDOT also sent a crew to fix damage to the bridge's guardrail.
