CRASH TAKES LIFE OF YOUNG MONTGOMERY MAN

Just after 1 am Conroe Police and Conroe Fire responded to a reported SUV crash on SH 105 West between Blake Road and Old 105. Units arrived to find two males in their early twenties trapped in an SUV that slammed into the rear of a parked 18-wheeler. Firefighters removed the driver of the SUV who was in cardiac arrest and worked for over 20 minutes to revive the male but were unable to. The passenger was transported to HCA Conroe in critical condition. He told police that they were westbound and the driver had looked down, however, when he looked back up the 18-wheeler loaded with sod was parked partially int he moving lane of traffic and they slammed into it. Montgomery Coutny Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack responded to the scene for the inquest and ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy. The road was closed westbound until after 4 am. The section of road in front of The Grass Store where the truck was going to make the delivery of sod had been improved by TXDOT with the center median. However, the improved shoulder is not wide enough for a vehicle which caused the driver to park partially in the roadway as he got out to unlock the gate to the business. In addition with the median police were unable to counter flow traffic safely due to the hill just west of the scene causing a blind spot as vehicles topped it. They did however close of two eastbound lanes to allow motorists to make a U-turn. However, it was noticed that most eastbound traffic failed to slow to a safe speed as they approached the scene. One motorist attempted to counterflow but was quickly stopped. According to Judge Mack both young men were from the Montgomery area.
