The Fred Hartman Bridge in Baytown was shut down for several hours yesterday after a fiery crash occurred. The accident was reported to have occurred at about 8:20 a.m. yesterday morning, in the northbound lanes of SH-146 at the bridge.

Police are still working to determine the cause of the crash, though images posted by the Harris County Precinct 8 Constable’s Office show a vehicle in flames on the Baytown bridge.

There is no information on injuries at this time, though officials with the Harris County Precinct 8 Constable’s Office reported on their Facebook page that Life Flight responded to the scene.

Drivers were encouraged to find alternative routes as first responders worked to clear the scene. By 9:34 a.m., one lane was open, and at 10 a.m., the roads were announced to be clear.
