The city of Pharr communications director, Daniel Ramirez, tells us the crane was unable to lift the 18-wheeler due to it being fully loaded.

He tells us crews will work on unloading the 18-wheeler in order to successfully lift it.

The interchange is expected to remain closed throughout the morning.
