Earlier in the night, multiple vehicles were involved in a pile-up wreck on Beltway 8 near the Hardy Toll Road on Houston's north side.
Harris County Toll Road Authority officials cleared the scene. It's not yet clear exactly how many vehicles were part of the chain-reaction crash. There is no word if anyone was injured.
Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez shared that the dispatch center had received dozens of traffic-related calls since Sunday morning.
Then at 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted there were 134 traffic crashes across the Houston area. Officials advise against any travel.
