At 2:49 am on Thursday, North Montgomery County Fire Department was dispatched to a major accident on Shepherd Hill Road at Old Danville in Willis. Units arrived just west of I-45 on Shepherd Hill to find a 2023 Camero had struck a tree. The driver of the vehicle, 20-year-old Derrick Mogenson, of Willis, was deceased. DPS Troopers investigated the crash and determined the single vehicle was westbound on Shepherd Hill at an extremely high rate of speed. The vehicle left the roadway and struck a tree with such force that the engine separated from the vehicle and was found across the road from the crash. Montgomery County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Wayne Mack ordered Eichenhorst Funeral Directors to transport the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.
