CHANNELVIEW, Texas (KTRK) -- A deadly crash involving an 18-wheeler on the East Freeway at the Beltway caused backups for three hours, Houston Transtar video shows.

A total of three vehicles were involved in the crash. A woman, who was ejected from one of the vehicles, was pronounced dead at the scene, Gonzalez said.
