At 1:02a.m. this morning Trooper Gray from the DPS Magnolia Office responded to a motorcycle crash on SH 249 at Baltzell Road in Pinehurst.
Coby Ray Pershall, age 21, of Pinehurst was southbound on SH249 on his 1996 Harley Davidson when he struck the median and was ejected without a helmet. A Montgomery County Sheriff’s unit was first on the scene and advised the dispatcher of the riders critical condition.
MCHD arrived on the scene and immediately called for Life Flight two who also responded. Within minutes of arriving Pershall went into cardiac arrest. As crews worked to stabilize him Life Flight landed and further assisted the firefighters and MCHD crew.
Accompanied by the Life Flight crew Pershall was transported to Tomball Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:47 a.m.
This is the sixteenth fatal accident in Montgomery County this year. It is also the second serious motorcycle in thirty hours.
