CRASH INJURES MOTHER AND DAUGHTER-DRIVER ARRESTED

At 10:45 pm DPS, New Caney Fire Department and MCHD were dispatched to a reported major accident on SH 242 at Majestic Oaks. As DPS troopers arrived they were told the striking vehicle fled the scene.

Within seconds another DPS Trooper stopped the white 2006 Infiniti IFX  driven by Stephanie Joy Delprete, approximately one-half mile away. The vehicle had not just heavy front end damage but side damage also.

The vehicle she struck was a Chevrolet Suburban driven by a female and her young daughter as a passenger. The Suburban suffered heavy damage as it had rolled after being struck. Even though it landed back on its wheels the mother and daughter were trapped in the vehicle.

According to DPS Troopers the Suburban was traveling east on SH 242. As it approached the curve near Majestic Oaks the Infiniti, which was westbound traveled into the eastbound lanes. The driver of the Suburban tried to avoid a head on crash by going to the westbound lane but was still struck.

After looking at the damage on the Infiniti it was determined that the driver was one of the same who was involved in another hit and run accident  at Village Way and Old Houston less than an hour earlier.

The yet unidentified driver of the Infiniti was not able to pass the field sobriety test. She has been transported to the hospital for a mandatory blood draw.

She will most likely be filed on for at least two counts of intoxication assault.

As troopers were about to clear the scene a shower of sparks could be seen in the distance. That shower of sparks turned out to be a male driving a vehicle on the left front rim. He was stopped and also being investigated for possible intoxication.

Stephanie Joy Delprete, 26, of 21853 Lost Meadow was later booked into the Montgomery County Jail on two counts of intoxication assault with vehicle causing serious bodily injury. Her bond was set at $25,000 for each count.
