HOUSTON, TX – A woman is dead following a series of collisions on the Eastex Freeway this evening, according to KTRK.

The initial crash happened on the southbound freeway (Highway 59/I-69) near Kingwood Drive at around 7 p.m. and involved a woman driving a red sedan and a second driver who fled the scene. The initial crash was minor, and the driver got out of her vehicle to check on her children after the crash.

She was then struck by the driver of a truck who attempted to swerve but still collided with her.

A third driver then hit the back of her sedan, and the woman was thrown some distance.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. Her identity was not immediately released.

No other injuries were immediately reported in the crash.

The driver that struck the woman remained at the scene and has reportedly cooperated with the investigation, which continues at this time.
