It can be a dangerous situation if a car stalls out on the highway. The vehicles behind that car will need to be alert lest an accident occur. However, if a big rig stalls out on the highway, the potential for danger will increase exponentially. That is precisely what happened when a big rig crash caused a major traffic jam.

A vehicle hit the stalled big rig a little after 4 in the morning at the Alvarada Niles Road on-ramp. When it was struck, the big rig crashed into the center divider. The concrete from the divider scattered across the highway.

In this event, one would be wise the call a tow truck. That is precisely what the authorities did. However, in a stroke of irony, the tow truck itself got into an accident when it was en route to pull the big rig out of the way.

Both streams of traffic on the highway had to be stopped, since cement spread across the both sides. The authorities came in and cleared everything up, and the whole incident did not take more than four hours. This means that people were sitting in a traffic jam, waiting to get to their important engagement for up to four hours. Both sides of the freeway opened at 9 in the morning.
