Houston police are working on a fatal car crash that's causing major backups along the West Loop northbound.

The crash happened Friday evening on the northbound lanes of the West Loop at the ramp exit for 18th Street. The crash has since closed the exit ramp onto 18th Street, as well as the service road that goes on to 18th Street from I-10.

At this moment, it's unclear what led to the crash, but SkyEye video shows the car may have struck the center divider on the highway.
