Just after 10 p.m. Wednesday night a Montgomery County Deputy stopped a vehicle on the left shoulder of I-45 northbound just north or SH 242. As he searched the vehicle several wreckers pulled up for a wrecker call. As they sat with their overhead lights going a Honda Accord came onto the extra wide shoulder which is over twenty-five feet and without braking slammed into the rear of a Quick Tow Wrecker driver by Joe Kerns of Spring. The 36-year-old driver of the car was killed on impact. The wrecker driver was transported to St. Liukes in stable condition.
DPS investigated the crash and are trying to determine what the Honda was doing driving on the left shoulder.
The impact was so great that it lifted the wrecker off the ground pushing it almost thirty feet before the wrecker came in contact with the ground again and slid almost thirty feet. This while it remained in park.
The driver was identified as Michael E, Jedrzybnski, 36 of Conroe. Judge Trey Spikes ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.
