UPDATE: Victims names released after family finally notified
August 27, 2009
The names of the Willis couple involved in a tragic automobile accident on FM 1484 on Aug. 21 were withheld longer than most because most of their immediate family lived out of state, according to law enforcement, making notification of next of kin difficult. The families were eventually found, and the female victim will be buried on Friday. Her husband remains hospitalized.
Sandra Gayle Kelley Creekmore, 52, was a postal carrier and the wife of Randall Bruce Creekmore.
Sandra Creekmore was a native Houstonian.
UPDATE: Victim still clinging to life
August 24, 2009
A man involved in a head-on collision on FM 1484 last week that killed his wife remains in critical condition, according to DPS officials. The couple’s names are withheld because their families live out-of-state and police are having difficulty locating someone to make notification. They were in an older model Chevy S10 pickup that did not have airbags.
The driver of the SUV that drifted into the pickup’s lane was identified as 47-year-old Juan Antonio Reyna of Conroe. His passenger was identified as 40-year-old Ana Delmy Reyna, who was also critically injured and is recovering.
NORTH MONTGOMERY COUNTY- A head-on collision on FM 1484 around 7:30 p.m. Friday night left one dead and two critically injured.
Trooper Pena with the Texas Department of Public Safety said the crash occurred just east of Rose Road during a heavy downpour. A 2004 Chrysler SUV was eastbound when, according to Pena, the driver and witnesses stated he lost control of the vehicle because of the rain and slid across into the oncoming lane, where he struck an older model white Chevy S10 pickup.
Impact occurred on the crest of a hill and in a curve, Pena said. The collision was not centered, but more to the passenger side of both vehicles, the trooper said, causing both to rotate. The SUV went counterclockwise, landing in a ditch along the tree line and the pickup rotated clockwise, on the road and stopped facing the opposite direction.
A female passenger in the pickup was critically injured and despite what Pena said was a desperate effort by MCHD EMS on-scene to save her, the woman died. The pickup’s male passenger had massive internal injuries, along with injuries to his chest and jaw. He was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands were he was transported by air ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Pena said the older model pickup was not equipped with airbags, but both occupants were wearing safety belts.
The SUV’s passenger suffered a broken arm, leg and hip on the right side and was flown by air ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. The driver of the SUV had minor, non-life threatening injuries and was also transported by ground ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands. They were also wearing seatbelts.
Pena said the accident remained under investigation, but said it appeared the driver of the SUV was driving at an unsafe speed, since the road was wet. He was also on the wrong side of the road in a curve which was also a no passing zone, Pena said.
