By  | 

Traffic is moving again on Highway 6 after an unanticipated stop caused an unexpected tie-up in Hearne.

Authorities say a massive crane fell off a big rig Wednesday night when the truck driver had to slam on his breaks. The driver said he was trying to avoid rear-ending a passenger car that had stopped suddenly in front of him at some railroad tracks.

Police said the passenger car took off after seeing the wreck behind him.

No one was injured and no one was arrested.
