SUGAR LAND, Texas (KTRK) -- The northbound lanes of the Southwest Freeway at US-90 in Sugar Land have reopened after a six-vehicle crash due to ice.

The crash happened Thursday evening, as an arctic front moved through our area.

Across Houston and surrounding areas, there were multiple reports of ice on the road.

A Precinct 1 constable deputy was heading northbound on the Hardy Toll Road past 610, when the deputy hit ice and lost control.

The deputy had to be transported to the hospital.
