Man struck, killed while moving tarp off road in NE Harris County

A man was struck and killed while trying to move a tarp off of a roadway Sunday night in northeast Harris County.

The man, believed to be between 50 and 60 years old, was pushing a cart in the 4200 block of Langley Road, just east of the Eastex Freeway, around 10:20 p.m. He appeared to have been holding a tarp in the middle of the roadway when the 68-year-old driver of a Chevrolet Colorado pickup struck him, according to Harris County Sheriff’s Office Sgt.
