Saturday afternoon four motorcycles were riding in a group on FM 149 near Moriarty northbound. A motorcycle was in the front, two others riding side by side next to it and a fourth behind them. The front motorcycle slowed to turn left into a private driveway. As that driver and rider did, the rearmost motorcycle attempted to avoid hitting the two in front of him and went into the southbound lanes, passing the two motorcycles and slammed into the first motorcycle while in his left turn. The driver of the rear motorcycle was in critical condition. A medical doctor who ran up on the scene attempted life saving measures. She was even successful in starting a tracheotomy using a kitchen knife and ink pen. CPR was continued until St. Joseph EMS from Grimes County, MCHD, Montgomery Fire Department and Richards Fire Department arrived on the scene. After working on the driver he was finally pronounced deceased. The male and female from the first motorcycle, that was turning left were transported by MCHD to Conroe Regional Hospital in stable condition.
The deceased motorcycle driver is identified as Thomas Dallago, age 56
Injured were Timothy Joseph Buchanan, 53
Teresa Jimenez Buchanan, 50
