Big rig loses steel coils on I-10 ramp near downtown San Antonio

Steel coils weighed more than 9,000 pounds each; No injuries reported


Two steel coils weighing more than 9,000 pounds each fell off an 18-wheeler just south of downtown San Antonio late Wednesday night.

San Antonio police said the big rig was traveling south on Probandt around 11:30 p.m. when the driver turned too fast onto the entrance ramp to Interstate 10 East.

The steel coils fell off the trailer and officials were forced to close the entrance ramp.

A towing truck was called to assist in recovering the steel and properly place it back on the trailer. No injuries were reported and the ramp reopened a short time later.
