Workers at the scene of an accident Monday afternoon east of Houston on Highway 17.

Traffic was slow about six miles east of Houston last evening as wreckers attempted to clear the scene of a wreck where a tractor-trailer unit carrying crushed cars overturned early Monday afternoon.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Missouri Department of Transportation were on the scene directing traffic on Highway 17.

The driver of the big rig was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
