Original Post:
AUSTIN (KXAN) — The southbound lanes of Interstate 35 at FM 1327 are closed as crews clean up the mess left behind by a semi truck that rolled over. The truck crashed on the FM 1327 overpass over the interstate.

The lanes will be closed while a wrecker turns the truck back over. Police do not know when the road will reopen. The crash happened about 11:15 a.m.on the eastbound side of the overpass. Originally, the collision did not interfere with traffic on I-35.
