Driver killed in 18 wheeler accident on Houston’s North Loop

Local media outlets are reporting a person was killed in a rear end accident involving a white van and an 18 wheeler on the North Loop near Jensen Thursday afternoon. At around 3:30 p.m. the van hit the rear of an 18 wheeler in the eastbound lanes. The van, apparently a commercial vehicle, sustained massive front end damage in the crash. Lanes were closed for several hours as Houston police investigated the cause of the accident. Two media outlets, the Chronicle and Channel 13, report that a person was injured rather than this being a fatality.
