A deadly 18-wheeler crash blocked traffic on I-45, north of Conroe, for over 4 hours. The accident involved five vehicles, including a FedEx 18-wheeler truck. No details on who died in the crash or on any other injuries have been released.
The accident happened today on 1-45 at FM 830 at around 5:24 am, according to Houston TranStar. Authorities say a car struck the rear end of a FedEx truck. This caused the FedEx truck to lose control and flip onto its side. Three other vehicles crashed into the 18-wheeler in a chain reaction.
The accident blocked all lanes throughout the peak of rush hour. Traffic was backed up for miles. The freeway finally reopened shortly after 10 am.
