Posted: Updated:

A truck that hit an overpass just north of Canyon on US 87, near Hunsley Road, is open and safe to travel on, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

The accident happened around noon and caused an hour and a half delay for traffic in the area.

TxDOT says a tow truck carrying a fork lift hit the beams of the FM 3331 overpass.

They say the bridge is safe to drive on. A routine inspection will be done on Monday to further evaluate any damage.
