Today, a truck hauling what appears to be a "rebar cage" that was too high hit the BNSF railroad bridge at SH 114 & FM 156. This accident knocked the railroad bridge out of alignment. A train was crossing the bridge when the accident occoured. Emergency repairs are underway.

This shut down a very busy BNSF rail line. Luckily, there is an easy alternate route for them through the Alliance Yard.
This is also race weekend at the nearby Texas Motor Speedway.
