All eastbound lanes of the Grand Parkway were shut down Friday evening due to a deadly two-vehicle crash involving a box truck, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident happened in the 12000 block of SH-99 at Huff-Smith and Korhville in north Harris County, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez tweeted.
One person has been confirmed dead, according to officials.

A car was also seen with severe damage on both ends as officials began to clean up.
In addition to the eastbound lanes, the eastbound ramp on SH-249 is closed as there is an active investigation ongoing.
