TEXAS CITY

A crash involving a tractor-trailer rig is blocking people from driving onto state Highway 146 from Interstate 45, according to the Galveston County Sheriff's Office.

A truck carrying cotton bales rolled over on the highway about 9 a.m. Tuesday, according to the sheriff's office.

No one was injured in the crash, Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said. Two exits on the northbound side of Interstate 45 — Exit 5 and Exit 7A — are closed as the crash is being cleared, Trochesset said.
