The wreck reportedly happened before 6:00 a.m., and, although the school district said there are no injuries to report nor children on board at the time of the impact, several lanes near MacGregor became blocked for approximately one hour.

Traffic stood bumper-to-bumper beyond Beltway 8 for some time. Police say weather could be an additional factor to the slowdown, given the slicker roadways.
