Tractor-trailer dangles from freeway sign

HOUSTON (KHOU/CNN) - A bizarre accident Tuesday involving a tractor trailer and an overhead sign shut down a Houston highway and no one really knows how it happened.

Traffic was backed up for miles after a big rig was separated from its cab, leaving its cargo hanging on an overhead sign.

Traffic was diverted from the nearby off-ramp because officials were worried about the sign's stability.
