CHILD RUSHED TO HOUSTON HOSPITAL AFTER CAR SLAMS INTO REAR OF STOPPED 18-WHEELER IN MONTGOMERY

At 8:51 pm Wednesday multiple calls started coming to 911 dispatchers in reference to a small red car that had slammed into an 18-wheeler and was under it on Fish Creek just south of FM 2854. Lake Conroe Fire units arrived first to find a 2018 Suburu WRX under a lowboy equipment hauling 18-wheeler trailer. They were able to pull a 5-year-old boy out of the back seat of the vehicle through the only opening into the passenger compartment. The male driver in his 30’s was found to be deceased once he was cut out of the vehicle. The driver of the 18-wheeler told DPS Troopers that he was northbound on Fish Creek on the inside lane of the two northbound lanes when an airline broke causing his air brakes to lock up. Unable to move the vehicle he activated his flashers and walked to the back of the truck to check the brakes. As he got back upfront the Suburu slammed into the back of the 18-wheeler. Firefighters had to raise the loading ramp to gain access to the vehicle. The MCHD transported the boy to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston in critical condition. Montgomery County Precinct 2 Justice of the
Peace Trey Spikes ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center. DPS noted there were no skid marks from the Suburu. The roadway is unlit with a 45 mile per hour speed limit. No charges are being filed at this time. The investigation is continuing.
