First responders jumped to action when a box truck overturned on an HOV exit lane on the I-45 North Freeway at Crosstimbers Street on Wednesday morning.

It’s unclear exactly what led to the box truck tipping over, but video from the scene shows that it nearly rolled over the edge of the overpass.

Reporters were live from the ground and from news helicopters as well as Houston firefighters worked to rescue the driver from the truck.

It appeared firefighters used a harness to hoist the driver out of the passenger side window.

Eventually, the ladder trucks retreated and an ambulance was seen leaving the scene. The driver’s condition was unknown.

All I-45 southbound lanes were closed at Crosstimbers Street as officials worked to upright the truck.

Reporters have reached out to police for more information about what led to the crash.
