FATAL CRASH CLOSES FM 1485 FOR FIVE HOURS

At 5:24am MCHD and New Caney Fire Department responded to a three car major accident on FM 1485 at Firetower Road. Initial reports say that a white Nissan was southbound on FM 1485 when it came into the curve and crossed the center line. That vehicle struck a 2010 Hyundai Sonata head on. The Sonata then continued to slide into the intersection of Firetower Road where a Honda Accord was waiting at the stop sign. The female driver saw the crash and the vehicle coming toward her. She put her vehicle in reverse. She escaped severe injury as the Sonata slammed into her vehicle. There was very heavy fog at the time. The driver of the Sonata was entrapped and was extricated by Caney Creek Fire Department who assisted. That driver was taken to Conroe Regional Hospital in critical condition after a helicopter request was turned down due to fog.

The driver of the Nissan was also entrapped and after a lengthy extrication by the New Caney Fire Department went into trauma arrest, crews worked on the driver for an extended time but he was pronounced dead just before 6:30am.

Montgomery County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace James Metts ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.

The name will be released later today.

 

FM 1485 was closed until 10am as DPS worked the investigation,
