HOUSTON --A bizarre rush hour crash shut down Highway 290 at Huffmeister Road in Houston, where a woman stripped down and climbed on top of a big rig truck and refused to come down for about two hours Monday morning.
Firefighters and police officers finally coaxed her into a ladder truck basket at about 11 a.m.
The outbound lanes of 290 were shut down four a couple of hours. The inbound side was shut down for about 20 minutes while they got her down.
The details of the initial accident are not clear.

The woman, clearly agitated, stood up a few times, but then returned to sitting on the cab of the 18-wheeler.
Drivers are advised to avoid the area.
