NEW CANEY FATAL CRASH-JEEP GOES OFF FREEWAY OVERPASS

At 12:40 am Sunday EMC and Porter Fire were dispatched to a reported crash involving a vehicle that left the freeway and crashed under the overpass. Units got there to find a Jeep Wrangler upside down on FM 1485 under SH 99. The driver had been ejected from the vehicle and was deceased. The drivers wife who was in the passenger seat was in stable condition and transported to Kingwood Hospital. She did have a seatbelt on. DPS Troopers determined the Jeep was westbound on SH 99 between WIlderness and Galaxy Drive. As he approached the FM 1485 overpass the 30-year-old male left the roadway and traveled down the center grassy median. With no barrier at the overpass, the Jeep launched off and landed upside down some 20 feet below. The driver who was not wearing a seatbelt was ejected from the vehicle. Eickenhorst Funeral Directors transported the victim to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy.
