FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - A FedEx truck loaded with packages flipped onto its side in a construction zone along Loop 820 in north Fort Worth early Friday morning. The crash shut down most of the westbound lanes of the freeway and created a huge traffic mess.

The incident happened at about 3:45 a.m. in the westbound lanes — not far from Interstate-35W — and allowed just one lane of traffic to get through the area.

Authorities estimated that it could be several hours before the freeway would be fully re-opened, and it continued to be closed through the morning rush hour. All of the packages from the big rig had to be unloaded before the truck could be towed away.
