YOUNG CHILD HIT BY VEHICLE ON FM 1485 REMAINS CRITICAL

At 10:40 am Saturday morning East Montgomery County Fire was dispatched to an auto/pedestrian crash on FM 1485 in front of Wild Country RV Park near Gene Campbell. Firefighters arrived to find a teen in the middle of the roadway in critical condition. Paramedics soon arrived and transported the 11-year-old to Memorial Hermann Hospital with severe injuries. According to DPS who investigated the crash, two teens were crossing FM 1485 from the RV Park going to the Valero Store across the street. A Ford F150 pickup was southbound on FM 1485 driven by a male with his daughter and young son as passengers. The teen ran out in front of the vehicle which was traveling at the posted speed. The driver hit his brakes and swerved. However, the left front fender caught the teen throwing him just over 100-feet. The pickup ran into the ditch. DPS determined speed was not a factor in the crash and the driver was not faulted. Security footage showed the entire scene which helped in their determination. The latest reports are the teen is expected to survive but is critical. All Points removed the truck from the ditch and was assisted by Kwik Tow. The road reopened at noon.

UPDATE MIDNIGHT-Little Andrew remains in critical condition, his family has been keeping us updated. At present, he has two broken clavicles, head trauma, and a lung filled with blood. He is expected to recover. Please keep Andrew and his family in your prayers and the family who was in the vehicle that struck him.
