HOUSTON -- Heavy rain overnight led to high water and a crash that shut down the North Freeway early Monday.

High water blocked lanes southbound at N. Main. A crash shortly after 4 a.m. shut down all inbound mainlanes at the same location.

As of 4:35 a.m. only one lane was getting by. The freeway later fully reopened just before 5 a.m.
