Driver dies after crashing into 18-wheeler on west Houston feeder road

HOUSTON, TX — A person was killed early Saturday when their car hit the back of a stopped 18-wheeler on a Katy Freeway feeder road in west Houston, according to News 4 San Antonio.

The fatal accident occurred at the intersection of the IH-10 frontage road and Central Park West Boulevard, near the Energy Corridor area, at around 2:45 a.m.

Houston Police Department said an 18-wheeler had been stopped in the feeder road’s moving right lane with its lights flashing when the victim, who was driving at high speed, crashed into the back of the trailer. The car was pushed underneath the 18-wheeler, and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said the driver of the 18-wheeler, who told officers he pulled over to recover from fatigue, had stopped his truck in an illegal zone.
