11:30pm-DPS Troopers a short time ago reopened FM 1485 at Gene Campbell after a fatal accident just after 9 p.m..
At this point the fifty-year-old white male from the New Caney area has not been identified pending notification of next of kin.
The victim was struck in the eastbound lane of FM 1485by what appears to be an eastbound vehicle and thrown several feet. The vehicle that struck hit did not stop. Troopers are hoping to get evidence from the clothing as there was very little on the scene to determine a type of vehicle or color.
Anyone who may have seen something is asked to call DPS.
This accident brings the fatal accident toll in Montgomery County to 18 this year.
Judge James Metts pronounced the victim dead and ordered Metcalf Funeral Directors to transport the victim to Dallas for autopsy.
