Thursday morning, just north of Conroe on I-45, one man was killed and another injured in a crash involving five cars.
The accident occurred between FM 830 and League Line Road about 5:30 AM. I-45 was closed down with traffic diverted to a feeder road.
Conroe Police Sergeant Dorcy Riddle reports that a Honda Civic was headed south on I-45 Thursday morning when it allegedly struck the rear of an 18-wheeler. The Civic spun out of control and was then hit by an Accord which knocked the Civic back into traffic where it was hit by another 18-wheeler. The Civic was then hit another time by a Fed-Ex 18-wheeler which overturned.
The man driving the Honda Civic was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Fed-Ex truck suffered minor injuries and was released from the hospital. No one else was reported injured.
