A man died in a gruesome Sunday morning wreck after his car slipped under a Kroger truck in west Houston. 

Just before 2 a.m., the 18-wheeler was headed north on Hillcroft when a BMW traveling east on Westpark ran a red light and drove under the truck. 

The crash ripped the top off the car, killing the man behind the wheel. The BMW skidded off for nearly a quarter mile before coming to a stop. 

The truck driver was not hurt and showed no signs of being impaired, but the crash is still under investigation, according to Houston police.
