Ice causes problems on Southeast Texas roads

HOUSTON - by KHOU 11 News and


Several minor crashes were reported as road crews responded to icy conditions across the Houston area before sunrise Tuesday.

Patches of ice were reported along S. Gessner near Highway 290, and a major crash was reported nearby at Hempstead Highway shortly after 6:30 a.m. The road was closed and drivers were forced to turn around.


Later in the morning on W. Orem in southwest Houston a fender bender was reported at Townwood Drive. It appeared a driver hit an ice patch, causing two SUVs to collide.

Other minor wrecks occurred along the North Freeway frontage road near Crosstimbers. Officials closed the freeways north and southbound frontage roads as well as ramps in the area.

There were no reports of serious injuries.

And shortly before 5 a.m. crews treated both sides of the Westpark Tollway with sand after ice formed on the underpass at the Southwest Freeway. The tollway was briefly closed in both directions.

Temperatures in Houston bottomed out in the 10s and 20s early Tuesday morning. No precipitation fell overnight, so the icy conditions were caused by water draining onto the roadways.
