AUSTIN (KXAN) — A crash involving an 18-wheeler has closed the southbound lanes to traffic on State Highway 95 between Channel Road and FM 971.

The crash happened just south of Granger, where one person was taken from the wreck to Seton Williamson Hospital.

The big rig caught fire after the crash, damaging about 200 feet of guardrail.
