A head-on collision Saturday night killed a Cypress woman and sent a pair of brothers from The Woodlands to the hospital.
According to DPS Trooper Campbell, the tragedy occurred just after 11:30 p.m. on Nichol Sawmill, in the Magnolia area. Tyler Davis, 19, was northbound in a Ford F150 4×4 pickup with his 17-year-old brother, Kyle, in the passenger seat. Around the entrance to the Indigo Lakes Subdivision, Campbell said a southbound black Toyota Avalon XLS, driven by 21-year-old MaryCatherine Madry, crossed the center line for unknown reasons and struck the Ford pickup head-on.
A witness in a vehicle behind Davis’s pickup said she never saw Madry’s Toyota prior to the crash – not even the headlights.
The impact of the collision was so great that it snapped the driveshaft of the Ford pickup in two. The Magnolia Fire Department had to cut both the door and dashboard of the Toyota to free Madry. She was pronounced dead on the scene by Pct. 5 Justice of the Peace Matt Masden, who ordered Eickenhorst Funeral Directors to transport her to the Montgomery County Forensic Services Department in Conroe for autopsy. She did not have any passengers.
The Davis brothers were transported in stable condition by ground ambulance to Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands.
The crash occurred a short distance from a double fatality on the same road eight days earlier. Items in Madry’s vehicle indicated she was returning from the Texas Renaissance Festival.
It is not believed speed or alcohol are factors in this crash.
The investigation is continuing.
