Posted: Updated:
EL CAMPO, Texas -

Northbound lanes of Highway 59 at El Campo have been shut down after a Texas Department of Criminal Justice van overturned in the median.

The van was hauling prisoners.

Kristie on Facebook reached out to us and posted several pictures of what she could see form her vantage point as she was stuck on the highway.

All northbound lanes were blocked while and air ambulance and several ambulances responded to the scene.

No word yet on how many prisoners the van was transported.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
