MCHD was dispatched to the scene and found both victims conscious but severely injured. Ferris had a partial amputation of his left foot. His female companion had a total amputation of her left foot. Due to weather conditions PHI Air Medical was unable to fly out of the Conroe base. Life Flight lifted from their Tomball base but were forced to turn around when severe weather met them at SH242 and Interstate 45.

SH105 east and west were closed for almost two hours as DPS conducted their investigation in sometimes heavy downpours.
