GILMER, TX (KLTV) - An overturned car hauler trailer has shutdown an East Texas overpass.

Witnesses on scene say a large truck was pulling a trailer, loaded with another truck, over the Highway 155 overpass in Gilmer when the trailer began to overturn. The trailer appeared to break free from the truck, jolting both it and the truck into the air. The trailer and truck are currently resting on the bridge's railing.

This overpass is the northbound lane of Highway 155 as it merges with north Highway 271. Traffic is currently being routed around the overpass.

Emergency crews have now arrived on scene. A Texas Department of Transportation unit will attempt to correct the truck and trailer.
