TranStar clocked in accidents in this general area of I-10 E and Beltway 8 at both 12:51 p.m. and at 1:42 p.m.
Images of the scene showed a large and empty car carrier stretched out, with the front of the vehicle stretched out in the opposing lanes. It clearly indicated that the trailer had crashed through the median.
