A crash involving a tractor-trailer slowed traffic along Interstate 45 in southern Dallas Thursday afternoon.

The crash took place on a bridge over the Trinity River along the Julius Schepps Freeway south of Lamar Street and north of Overton Road.

The jackknifed cab of the truck appears to have damaged some of the guardrails along the bridge.

The highway was not closed, though drivers were only able to get by on the shoulder until the roadway was cleared in the middle of the afternoon.

The cause of the crash is not known and no injuries were reported.
