Crockett Martin Road in East Montgomery County for years was known by teens for racing, another road intersecting it was also popular with the teens. That all changed this year as Montgomery County and DPS started patroling it and citing speeders. Since that time residents of the Deerwood Subdivision say the teens have now moved to their narrow, long residential street to do their racing. Highline Oaks East which is 1.3 miles long has turned into the perfect drag strip reident say. “Since police are on the other roads they have moved to our street,” one resident said. Just before noon Saturday that is exactly what happened and it could have been deadly. Two 17-year-olds took the street just before noon and tried just that. Side by side a Mercedes and a Nissan SUV went north. Just before they reached Highline Drive where the street ends, one vehicle struck the other causing both to lose control. The Mercedes went through three yards before coming to rest in the front yard of one home slightly damaging a parked car in that driveway. The SUV struck a tree in another yard. The driver of the SUV was transported in stable condition. The Mercedes driver suffered very minor injuries. If a passenger had been in the SUV DPS Trooper would have spent their afternoon working a fatal accident and notifying someone they had lost a loved one on Christmas Eve.
