Update, 10:05 p.m.

State Highway 146 continues to stay closed between the Kemah bridge and East NASA Parkway after a fatal wreck that involved multiple vehicles.

Three vehicles were involved, city of Seabrook spokeswoman LeaAnn Petersen said.

A vehicle traveling north hit another vehicle traveling south head on, she said. A third vehicle traveling south then rear ended the first car traveling south, she said.

The driver of the car traveling north was pronounced dead at the scene and was the only person in that car, Petersen said.

Occupants of the two other cars were transported to medical facilities, Petersen said. Petersen did not know Friday night how many people were in the two cars traveling south or where the injured people were transported, she said.

As of 10 p.m., traffic traveling south could access the connecting ramp to state Highway 146 by taking Todville Road to 10th Street, she said.
