HOUSTON—All main lanes of the North Loop westbound at Hardy Toll Road were shut down Thursday morning after a fatal accident on the highway, according to Houston Transtar.
Police say Luis Lauro Martinez-Duran slammed into the back of a Kenworth truck that had stopped because of a stalled 18-wheeler.
The driver of a Mercedes then struck the rear of the victim’s vehicle.
Martinez-Duran, 46, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The accident happened around 9:20 a.m.
It took about four hours to clear the scene and reopen the North Loop.
