A Fed-Ex big-rig pulling tandem-trailers overturned on the northbound lanes of Interstate 35E at Commonwealth in Dallas Wednesday morning, closing the highway for several hours.

Dallas County Sheriffs say the big-rig was one of 11 vehicles involved in the accident.

Investigators said one vehicle tried to cut off the big-rig and caused a chain reaction.

There have been no reported injuries in the crash.

The driver suspected of cutting off the truck was taken into custody for not presenting a valid driver's license or insurance card.

The crash was cleared and the roadway reopened at about 12:30 p.m.
