    NTTA video shows a tanker doing a u-turn on the Sam Rayburn Tollway.

    The North Texas Tollway Authority released video Friday of a tanker truck driver of a tanker truck who made an illegal U-turn in the middle of the Sam Rayburn Tollway on Thursday afternoon.

    The Dallas Morning News first reported that the drunken-driving suspect drove his tanker truck the wrong way on the shoulder of the tollway so that he could report that he hit a pickup.

    The crash happened at Alma Drive, and there were no major injuries, the NTTA told the newspaper.
