Video Shows Giant Spool Making Its Way Downtown Houston on I-10

If you've ever wondered what a giant spool looks like rolling down a highway, wonder no longer.

On Thursday, a giant spool of tubing came loose from a flatbed truck and began rolling down I-10 in Houston.
Despite going in the opposite direction of traffic, it's safe to say that the spool managed better than a lot of Texas drivers.

While the bizarre incident caused a delay in traffic, there were no reported injuries.
