On Tuesday, a Montgomery County grand jury indicted two teens in connection with a tragic motor vehicle accident that claimed the life of a Conroe High School senior football star on May 24, the Memorial Day weekend before graduation.
Investigating officers blamed street racing for the death of 17-year-old Jordan Wilson, who was pronounced dead on arrival at Conroe Regional Medical Center immediately after the crash. The driver, 18-year-old Johnnie O’Neal, was reportedly walking and talking on the scene before he was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands with non-life threatening injuries.
O’Neal was indicted Tuesday, along with 17-year-old Lazaro Torres Millan. Both face second-degree felony charges of racing on a highway causing serious bodily injury or death.
Jordan Wilson was a CHS Tigers defensive lineman, was named Most Valuable Player of the coaches’ All-District 14-5A team, and honorable mention 2008 Class 5a All-State team and had signed with the Air Force Academy, where he planned to play football and study civil engineering on a four-year scholarship.
