A big rig pulling a big load failed to negotiate a sharp turn Friday morning, blocking an intersection near Groesbeck High School.

Wreckers were at the scene at the intersection of McClintic Drive and Marlin Luther King Boulevard, Groesbeck police said in a Facebook post Friday morning.

Police expected the wrecker drivers to pull the rig onto State Highway 14 in front of the high school and anticipated having to close the highway temporarily.
