AUSTIN (KXAN) —  A rollover crash had some of the southbound lanes of SH-130 shut down near Gregg Manor Road while crews turned the 18-wheeler upright.

Firefighters told KXAN the driver was coming up to the overpass and flipped due to the strong winds from the storms. The driver was able to get out of the truck on his own; he is reportedly uninjured.

The truck was righted before 8 a.m. Friday.

The semi-truck was hauling Styrofoam cups.
