    An 18-wheeler that crashed into a creek forced the shutdown of NE Loop 820 at US-377/Denton Highway on Tuesday.

    One lane is open in both directions of the highway, but the other lanes of I-820 are closed during the emergency operations.

    Haltom City Deputy Fire Chief Fred Napp says a box truck traveling westbound on Loop 820 went off the road and went into Fossil Creek.

    According to Napp, emergency crews had to go into the creek bed to cut the driver out the vehicle. The driver was transported by medical helicopter to a Fort Worth hospital and appeared to be conscious to fire officials.

    During the rescue, a fire fighter was injured and was checked out at an area hospital as a precaution.
