A south bound 18-wheeler on State Highway 87 caused the highway to be closed Thursday morning after the 18 wheeler overturned.
According to a Bridge City Police Officer on scene, they responded to a report of a 18 wheeler over turned around 11:40 a.m. at the
intersection of State Highways 87 and 62.
The truck was occupied by a single driver, which had to be extracted out of the rig by Bridge City Fire Department after becoming
lodged behind the steering wheel.
The driver was assessed on scene by Acadian Ambulance and transported to St. Elizabeth hospital in unknown condition.
Highway 87 South bound remains closed at this time. Drivers are urged to take alternate routes.

Bridge City ISD released the following statement:

Due to traffic accidents at 62 and 87, as well as a traffic accident on 408, BCISD bus routes will likely experience significant bus transportation delays this afternoon. If you have plans with your family immediately after school we recommend picking your child up from the school if they are bus riders. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
