HOUSTON, TX -- A 63-year-old man died early Sunday after a multi-vehicle crash early Sunday in northeast Houston that left another person injured, according to the Houston Police Department.
The department's Vehicular Crimes Division said the collision occurred at 10101 Eastex Freeway (Interstate 69/North U.S. Highway 59), in the Eastex/Jensen area. It was first reported at about 3:05 a.m.
A preliminary investigation found that the man was operating a red Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck southbound when the vehicle drifted across several travel lanes and collided with a concrete wall. While the pickup was coming to a stop, it was hit by a driver in a blue Dodge Ram pickup. Moments after the Dodge came to a stop, it was struck by a third vehicle. A fourth vehicle then went on to collide with the Chevrolet.
Paramedics with the Houston Fire Department pronounced the driver of the Chevrolet deceased at the scene.
The driver of the Dodge reported minor injuries, but it was unclear whether they had to be taken to a hospital.
No one in the third or fourth vehicle were hurt.
At the time of the HPD's press release, no charges have been filed. Authorities continue to investigate the fatal crash.
