HOUSTON — A deadly crash is creating major delays for drivers on the Eastex Freeway in northeast Houston.

METRO officials said that around 5:20 a.m. Tuesday a driver got out of their vehicle after a car fire in the HOV lane of US-59/I-69 inbound at Aldine Mail Route Road.

According to officials, the driver was then hit by another vehicle and pronounced dead. The driver who struck the person stayed at the scene.

The HOV lane and the Eastex Park and Ride remain closed at this time. Drivers coming in from Kingwood should expect delays until the crash is cleared.
