Jackknifed 18-wheeler closes Interstate 37 in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO, TX — An 18-wheeler crashed on the highway on Friday morning in San Antonio.

According to FOXSanAntonio, the accident occurred on Interstate 37 a bit after midnight near Pecan Valley Drive. Weather conditions on the interstate made it difficult for the driver of the 18-wheeler to control his vehicle. He then skidded across the interstate before the 18-wheeler jackknifed. This caused the cabin to move out over the edge of the bridge.
