Just before 10am Friday morning as heavy rain fell 39-year-old Samantha Moses, a Conroe resident met her husband alongside the road on FM 149 near Karen Switch in West Montgomery County. After leaving some documents with him she drove off southbound as he pulled away going north. A friend riding with him witnessed what appeared to be an accident behind them in the side mirror.
Ms. Moses apparently slid on the wet road into the path of a water well drilling truck owned by Hurst Water Wells and driven by Joseph Hurst, the son of the owner. The Chevy Trail Blazer was T-boned by the well truck with such force that it tore the body off the frame of the vehicle. Ms. Moses died on the scene. Mr. Hurst was not injured but the force of the impact shot several joints of pipe forward striking and penetrating the passenger side of the cab like spears.
FM 149 was closed for almost three hours as DPS Troopers completed their investigation.
According to Trooper Buress Ms. Moses may have been traveling to fast for conditions. He stated that does not mean she was speeding but speed limits are set for ideal conditions, daylight, dry road, no obstructions and tires and vehicle equipment in top shape. In wet conditions people need to slow down some and be more careful.
