An 18-wheeler hauling a TxDOT crane on Highway 69 hit the top of the Interstate 20 overpass in Lindale. 

TxDOT officials say there's only minor damage which poses no safety risk for Interstate 20 or Highway 69. A TxDOT engineer evaluated the bridge and determined that no repairs were required. 

Southbound traffic on Highway 69 was temporarily stopped around noon on Thursday. Once the truck and crane were removed, traffic resumed its normal flow.
