Cement truck overturns, causing hazmat spill on Rice Rd near Hockley
HARRIS COUNTY, TX — Authorities were called to a rollover crash involving a cement truck Tuesday morning near Hockley, reports ABC13.
The Waller County Sheriff’s Office said the accident happened on a stretch of Rice Road east of Bradbury Road, at around 10:00 a.m.
Although the cause of the wreck has not been specified, aerial footage captured by SkyEye crews indicates the big rig overturned on the bridge’s side.
