WATCH: Trucker Gets Wrong-Way Police Escort

Mistakes may have been made, but at least this driver decided to turn around instead of plow into the overpass.

ABC13 reported a semi-truck driving northbound blocked I-45 in Houston this week when the driver realized their haul couldn’t make it under an overpass. The incident happened on May 17, and affected morning commuters around 8:30 a.m. Instead of testing the bridge’s limits, the trucker decided to call the police for help.

When police cars arrived, they escorted the big down the wrong way of I-45 until it was able to make a U-turn. Once it resumed travelling the right way on a different route, traffic was able to resume. No injuries were reported in the confusion.
