HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A deadly 5-car accident had the West Loop near Beechnut closed for several hours overnight.
Police tell ABC13 that 2 people were in a disabled car, in a moving lane of traffic, just before 2 a.m. this morning.
One vehicle tried to avoid hitting the car but couldn't.
That set off a chain reaction and three more vehicles crashed.
A man inside the disabled car was killed. A woman also in the car was taken to a hospital in critical condition. At this point police don't know if alcohol may have also been a factor.
