At 10:57 pm, just before the rains hit 911 operators started getting calls for a crash on US 59 southbound between SH 242 and Roman Forest. Splendora Police Officer Kerr was first on the scene and saw bystanders had several children out of the vehicle, one in particular was in critical condition and non-responsive. Kerr immediately began CPR on the little boy and continued until EMS arrived. He was transported to Memorial Hermann in the Medical Center in critical condition. Medics continued to work the child while enroute. Once there the staff at Memorial Hermann were able to stabilize the child. In addition to the 5-year-old, a 2-year-old and a 3-Year-old were also transported to the hospital in stable condition. The female driver of the Chrysler Sebring was also treated. A male driving a white Ford 15-passenger van was transported to Conroe Regional in stable condition. According to DPS the Sebring for unknown reasons slammed into the rear of the van driving it from the Roman Forest exit lane, across 3-lanes and into the concrete wall. The three children were in car seats in the back seat of the Chrysler. The 5-year-old was the only child in a booster seat and was situated in the middle. DPS Troopers are still attempting to determine why the female slammed into the van. US 59 was closed for almost 2-hours as Troopers worked the crash.
