BAYOU VISTA — A rollover wreck that snarled Monday afternoon rush-hour traffic in the northbound lanes of Interstate 45 had traffic backed up all the way to Galveston for about an hour.
Authorities responded to the wreck shortly before 5 p.m. in the northbound lanes of I-45 near Bayou Vista and the Texas City Wye.
Houston TranStar traffic cameras showed cars backed up in all northbound lanes across the Galveston Causeway bridge as far south as Harborside Drive.
Although the overturned automobile was cleared from the freeway about 5:30 p.m., it took nearly 30 minutes for traffic to begin flowing smoothly past The Daily News’ island office.
There was no immediate report of injuries in the crash.
