A major accident has left one local teenager dead and another injured. On Monday night just after 10 p.m., a 14-year-old female lost control of her vehicle after running a stop sign while driving westbound on White Oak Orchard at a high rate of speed. The vehicle turned 90 degrees then crashed head-on into a tree. The 15-year-old passenger identified as Anthony Gomez was partially ejected through the windshield.
Cut and Shoot Fire Department and Montgomery County Hospital District medics responded to the scene where Gomez was pronounced dead. The female, who is not being identified due to her juvenile status, was transported to Conroe Regional Hospital in stable condition.
Troopers noted that the airbags did not deploy. Further investigation determined that the passenger airbag was missing.
