MIDLAND - Traffic slowed to a crawl on Tuesday morning in Midland after a crash including an 18-wheeler and a trailer.

Police say a white pick-up truck was pulling a trailer on Loop 250 when it went over the overpass near the north "A" Street exit.

A bump in the road caused the trailer to come unhitched and run across the median and hit the semi truck.

The wreck shut down one lane of traffic in each direction.

Luckily, no one was hurt.

many trailers experience tire blow outs. Have you ever driven down a highway and seen pieces of tire on the side of the road? These are normally tire blow outs from trailers which can send them swerving all over the road until they regain control of their trucks. Keep enough distance between you and the trucks on the road in case of a blow out, too.
