A fiery crash on the Sam Houston Tollway killed a driver late last night.

Police say the driver was headed westbound when they somehow lost control on Almeda and slammed into a barricade on the feeder. The car flipped into a wooded area and caught fire, trapping the driver inside.

The accident shut down the beltway for several hours but it has since reopened.
