A fatal crash on the North Freeway near Tidwell has part of the freeway shut down. The closure is on the northbound lanes. At one point today, all the lanes were shut down. HPD says a man had made it across the southbound lanes, but when he tried to cross the northbound side, he was hit by an 18-wheeler and dragged.

The big rig driver did stop. No word how long the freeway will remain shut down. To see the latest traffic conditions in the area, click here.
