PASADENA, Texas — All westbound and eastbound lanes of Highway 225 were closed in Pasadena early Wednesday after a deadly crash.
The incident happened around 6:30 a.m., and the freeway did not fully reopen for more than four hours.
The crash appeared to involve a large truck and a smaller vehicle near Richey. Life Flight responded and landed at the scene as rescuers tried to free a person from the wreckage.
Authorities later confirmed at least one death.
This was the third major wreck southeast of Houston this morning alone. Earlier, a crash had parts of 610 closed northbound at the ship channel (read more here). And an 11-vehicle pileup was reported on the Fred Hartman Bridge/146 northbound as well (read more here).
