HOUSTON -- Police said a 27-year-old woman died after she rolled her SUV on the 610 Loop early Wednesday.

It happened just after 3 a.m., according to Houston TranStar.

Houston police said the woman was traveling westbound on I-10 East when she took the ramp to the 610 Loop northbound at a high rate of speed. Her white Ford Explorer rolled several times onto the loop’s frontage road near the exit for Gellhorn.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

The loop’s northbound mainlanes were briefly shut down but have since reopened.

As of 6:45 a.m. TranStar reported that the East Loop northbound at I-10 still had one ramp lane blocked, and the North Loop westbound at Gellhorn had three frontage road lanes blocked.
