Naked woman dancing atop 18-wheeler shuts down Texas highway

HOUSTON -- A woman undressed and climbed on top of a big rig on a major highway in the Houston area Monday.

The incident, which was captured on video, took place after a pedestrian had apparently been struck on Highway 290 in Harris County, local television station KPRC reported.

It was unclear if the woman was involved in the collision, or why she climbed on top of the truck.

Video showed the woman sitting, standing, and even dancing at various times as she remained on the cab of the 18-wheeler.

A Houston Fire Department ladder truck was parked in front of the big rig and one firefighter could be seen moving into position to help get the woman down, CNN reported.

She was eventually taken into custody by police.
