DPS says one person was killed when a tanker truck crashed and caught fire along the Katy Freeway.
A tanker truck caught fire on the feeder, forcing the closure of the westbound main lanes near Cane Island Parkway. That’s right in front of the Buc-ee’s.
Crews from TxDOT’s Houston district responded to the scene to help with the clean-up process. The main lane closures lasted for several hours.
Katy Police and DPS troopers worked the crash, but it wasn’t immediately known what caused it.
