      Authorities have shut down one lane of U.S. Highway 281 following a rollover accident involving an 18-wheeler headed to the Rio Grande Valley with a load of beer.

      It all happened on the southbound lanes of U.S. Highway 281 near Red Gate Road around 6:30 a.m. Friday.

      Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) state troopers are investigating the cause of the accident.

      Firefighters with the Linn-San Manuel Volunteer Fire Department are at the scene.
