Just after 8 p.m. Thursday night, Montgomery County law enforcement and medical units responded to a four-vehicle major accident at SH105 and Douget Rd., east of Loop 336 between Conroe and Cut and Shoot.
Units arrived to find a Chevy Blazer was struck head-on by a Chevrolet pickup in the center turn lane. When the Blazer was struck it in turn hit two other Dodge pickups.
The female driver of the Blazer was transported by ground ambulance to Hermann Hospital, The Woodlands. Her three occupants were also transported by ground ambulance to area hospitals.
The Chevy pickup was westbound on SH 105 at the time of the crash, according to DPS. Witnesses told investigating officers the truck was weaving in and out of traffic. He drove down the center turn lane where the eastbound Blazer was waiting to turn into the grocery store parking lot on the north side of the road.
The driver of the Chevy pickup was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston in critical condition by PHI Air Medical, Med 1.
The occupants of the other two vehicles suffered minor injuries and did not require transport to the hospital.
Highway 105 was closed for over two hours as the investigation continued. DPS was assisted by three Montgomery County Sheriff’s units.
According to DPS Trooper Robert Oelsner, alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.
The crash destroyed a highway memorial marker from a fatal accident on October 18, 2007.
