A 38-year-old man died after crashing into a construction zone overnight in northwest Harris County, officials said.
The man was driving at a high rate of speed through a construction zone when the vehicle jumped a curb and struck a concrete support pillar on the overpass. The pillar rolled over, pinning the driver, Cannon said.
The driver was transported to Ben Taub General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
His identity is pending verification with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
