A little after 9 a.m. Conroe Police were dispatched to a single vehicle accident on Interstate-45 northbound feeder at Gladstell. When they arrived they found a mini-van had been westbound on Gladstell and for some reason ran off the road, over a curb striking a highway sign. The van then traveled across the northbound lanes of the service road before crashing into a pole supporting the the traffic lights.
The elderly male who has not been identified was transported to Conroe Regional Hospital in critical condition, he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Conroe Police continue to investigate the crash. A medical condition could be the cause but that won’t be determined without an autopsy.
