HOUSTON, TX – One person was hospitalized after their vehicle crashed off an overpass on the North Freeway early this morning, according to KTRK.

The crash occurred on the North Freeway (I-45) at the 610 North Loop at about 5:40 a.m., when a driver was struck from behind by another vehicle.

The driver who was rear-ended lost control of their vehicle, then went about 30 feet over the side of the overpass before crashing onto the street below.

The person inside the fallen vehicle was taken to the hospital, where they are expected to survive.

Authorities do not believe that intoxicated driving played a role in the crash.

The roadway was closed for about five hours as authorities worked to clear the accident.
