Pork spilled on highway

Pieces of pork spilled out of a truck that crashed on U.S. 59 and Kroesche Road early Friday morning.

An accident involving an 18-wheeler scattered pieces of pork on U.S. 59 early Friday morning, causing the highway to be shut down for several hours.

Rosenberg police said that the truck flipped and crashed in the outside southbound lane of U.S. 59 at Kroesche Road around 4:40 a.m. on Friday, spilling boxes of pork carcasses all over the highway.

An assistant chief with the Rosenberg police told a Houston TV station that a hazmat team was dispatched to help with the cleanup.

There was no update on injuries to the driver, if any, as of press time.

Crews worked all morning to clear the highway of the pork off the highway, which was completely shut down for over three hours.

One southbound lane was open by 8:30 a.m. as the cleanup continued. All northbound lanes remained open during the accident.
