Daniel Kyle Morrison, 38, of 16819 Rockstone in Houston was traveling west on FM 2090 just before 11 am Sunday morning. As he approached the intersection of FM 1485 he ran the red light as he turned left onto FM 1485. His Honda Accord slammed into a Toyota Tundra pulling a small trailer. In that truck was a family of five including three children. Also in the truck were all the families’ yard maintenance equipment for their landscape business. The family had just finished doing yard work for a customer and were heading east toward Splendora. Caney Creek Fire Department, which was dispatched from their new station just a block away was there in seconds. They immediately called for three ambulances for the victims. The driver of the pickup had to be cut out of the driver’s seat. He was in stable condition. His wife and three children suffered minor injuries and were also transported to the hospital. The driver of the passenger car that ran the red light was not injured. It didn’t take long for the DPS Trooper who arrived at the scene to detect the driver of the vehicle that ran the red light was intoxicated. He was arrested and transported to the Montgomery County Jail. It was then learned that the driver had three prior DWI convictions. Two of those were in Harris County, the first on January 5, 2015, and the second on November 21, 2015. Those two cases were combined into one sentence and he was given one year in the Harris County Jail which was probated for 18 months. He completed his probation at which time the judge dismissed the first charge on September 25, 2017. Then just three weeks later on October 14, 2017, he was arrested in Montgomery County for Driving while intoxicated, his third. On November 30, 2017, Judge Michalk sentenced him to two years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. He was released from prison on October 14, 2019, and on January 12, 2020, he was again arrested by DPS on I-69 at East River in Splendora for his fourth DWI. For this DWI he was sentenced to 4-years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice by Montgomery County Judge Patty Maginnis on April 22, 2020, after he had been in the Montgomery County Jail for 101 days. He was released from TDC on parole on September 28, 2021, with just 18 months of his sentence served, and was to remain on parole until January 12, 2024. He is currently being held in the Montgomery County Jail without a bond until he sees a judge. He also faces a parole revocation.
UPDATE-HIS BOND HAS BEEN SET AT $50,000
