BAYTOWN, Texas -

An overturned 18-wheeler blocked a Baytown feeder road for hours before the road could be reopened.

Around 6 p.m. Wednesday, a big-rig headed north on the Highway 330 feeder road took a curve too fast.  Officials said the truck's load shifted, causing the 18-wheeler to flip over on its side.

It took crews seven hours to unload the truck's contents, and then lift the 18-wheeler back up. 

The feeder road reopened around 1 a.m. Thursday.

No one was injured in the accident.
