Just after 9am New Caney Fire Department was dispatched just around the corner from the fire station to Vick Drive for a three vehicle accident.
On arrival they found Charles Weathers, age 39 of New Caney severely injured. MCHD arrived on the scene and started working on Weathers to save his life. PHI Air Medical was dispatched and another engine crew from New Caney Fire Department set up a landing zone on the front driveway of fire station parking lot. Just as MCHD was about to head to the landing zone and just as the helicopter was approaching Mr. Weather’s condition worsened to a point he could not be properly worked on in the helicopter. He was transported to Kingwood Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
According to DPS Trooper Zendt, Zachery Jones, age 23, was southbound on Vick Drive just south of FM1485 in his Chevrolet pickup. He was followed by Florina Martinez age 28, who was driving a 2000 Ford Expedition. Charles Weathers was northbound on his 2009 Harley Davidson motorcycle. Weathers, who lives in the same neighborhood was driving at or about the speed limit when Jones turned in front of him in his pickup causing Mr. Weathers to strike the rear of the pickup. The motorcycle then spun in front of Ms. Martinez’s SUV and was struck by her heavily damaging the left front of her vehicle. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the accident.
