Dec. 14 (UPI) -- A giant spool got loose on a busy Houston road for the fourth time since October, forcing drivers to think fast to get out of its path.
A photo posted to Twitter shows the giant spool blocking lanes of traffic near the interchange of West Little York and the North Beltway on Thursday evening.
The driver who snapped the photo said the spool collided with a blue truck, but the family inside the truck did not appear to be injured.
The incident occurred just one week after an even larger spool came loose in traffic on the South Loop. Two spools got loose on Interstate 10, near Wayside, Nov. 12, and the first spool rolled free in the same area on Oct. 25.
