A Caney Creek High School junior remains hospitalized in critical condition following a Saturday night automobile accident. Just before midnight, MCHD EMS and Grangerland Fire Department responded to Crockett Martin Road near White Rock Road, between FM 2090 and SH 105 East, where they found a 1996 Chevrolet pickup heavily damaged, in the middle of the road. A 2004 Isuzu SUV was in a nearby yard with extensive right rear damage, and 17-year-old Shelby Andrus was beside it with life-threatening injuries

Because of heavy fog, no medical helicopters were flying patients. Medics took Andrus by ground ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center in Houston where she remained in critical condition on Sunday.

The driver of the pickup was Conroe resident Dusty Perry, who had only minor injuries and was treated and released on the scene. His female passenger, who also sustained minor injuries, was transported by ground ambulance Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands.

Trooper Jay Smith with the Texas Department of Public Safety said Andrus was northbound on Crockett Martin when she went into a left hand curve. The road was wet and her vehicle began to slide. She overcorrected and slid into the front of Perry’s pickup, striking it with the right rear of her vehicle. The impact was so great that debris was thrown under a parked vehicle at the home in front of the accident.

Andrus lives on Crockett Bend Drive, a short distance from the crash site.

The Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office and members of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations arrested a New Caney man Wednesday morning after a search warrant led to the discovery of child pornography on his home computer. Jeremy Michael Edwards, 30, of New Caney is charged with second-degree felony Possession/Promotion of Child Pornography. Pct. 4 Captain Mark Seals obtained the search warrant on the location believing another resident was the suspect. However, a thorough search showed the original suspect had no pornography. During questioning, it was revealed the original suspect was allowing his neighbor, Jeremy Edwards, to access his Wi-Fi. Jeremy Edwards gave investigators consent to search his mobile home where they found child pornography involving children as young as 4 to 6 years old. Edwards was then arrested and transported to the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office for booking. Precinct 4 Constable Kenneth “Rowdy” Hayden said he believes Edwards’ arrest probably prevented him from transitioning to sexually abusing a child. “I have to commend Captain Seals for putting so much effort into protecting children because I firmly believe they eventually act out what they’re viewing,” he said. “Our office is working with Constable Gable’s Office in taking a proactive approach and catching these suspects before they make that transition.” Members of Montgomery County Precinct 3 Constable Ryan Gable’s office assisted in the investigation and have been actively working with Precinct 4 investigators to pursue and prosecute Internet predators. The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office was also represented when the search warrant was executed. Constable Hayden said there was a lesson to be learned from the original suspect’s experience. “We have no reason to believe the original suspect knew anything about Jeremy Edwards’ illegal activities, but it appeared he was engaging in criminal activity because his Wi-Fi was used,” he said. “It’s very important to password protect your Internet connection and this should serve as a reminder to be careful about allowing others to access it.”

About 37 evidence markers are scattered across the parking lot off the North Freeway at Richey Road. Witnesses say they heard about that many gunshots ring out. Relatives at the scene say there was group meeting there for a fight. We’re told a father stepped in to protect his 12 year-old daughter who he had come to pickup. When he arrived he discovered her and several others were involved in a confrontation. He was shot at least five times.
Meanwhile, people visiting the Movie Tavern found themselves dodging bullets.
“And when we saw that all we knew was that didn’t want to come back outside because if they’re shooting out here, we definitely don’t want to be out here,” eyewitness Diane King said. “So we were trying to get to the inside and stay inside.”
The victim was transported via LifeFlight to Memorial Hermann Hospital but didn’t survive.

Harris County Homicide continues the investigation. There were no suspects on the scene. Also a reason for the fight and the congregation of people had been determined.

Witnesses told the Harris County Sheriff’s Office that the man driving the F150 westbound on the Grand Parkway drifted off the road, hit a concrete wall on the right, then crossed over the median into the opposite side of the freeway. Sgt. Aric Albers, of the Sheriff’s Office, said the truck then became airborne before striking a Lexus, sheering the top off it. Investigators said Linda Fuggiti was driving the Lexus on the eastbound side of the Grand Parkway when the Ford F150 went over it and crashed into a Chevy operated by Michael Brown, the second victim. “It struck the (Lexus) that was traveling eastbound pretty high up on the vehicle. That eastbound vehicle almost acted like a ramp,” Albers said. The truck continued on to strike three more cars before landing on its side, according to Albers, who described the multicar wreck as the “worst he’s seen in years.” Two people have been confirmed dead, while five others were taken to Memorial Hermann Woodlands Hospital. All of the injured are said to not have life-threatening injuries, including the driver of the pickup truck, Albers said. Officials said three victims are in good condition, one is in serious condition and the other is in critical condition. It has not been determined if the driver of the pickup truck will face any charges, as the investigation is ongoing.
Albers said the driver of the truck that caused the crash “doesn’t know” what happened, was probably traveling the speed limit of 75 mph, was not intoxicated and is cooperating with investigators. He expects the case to be handed over the district attorney’s office and then could be forwarded to a grand jury.

Cleveland Comfort Suites Hotel owner, David Kumar and his wife have been there for the community for many years. Many have seen his two sons, nineteen-year-old Neal and fourteen-year-old Ravi grow up over those years. Saturday night they left their hotel business in their Toyota Camry for their Kingwood home. As they got on the I-69 at SH-105 David realized the traffic was at a dead stop due to a car fire at the San Jacinto River bridge several miles ahead. There was nowhere to exit. I-69 through much of Liberty County has been under construction for over two-years as TXDOT brings the two-lane highway up to Interstate highway standards. This includes the widening to six-lanes, feeder roads, overpasses on crossroads, and an elevated bridge over the flood-prone East Fork of the San Jacinto River. Due to this construction, the two lanes with little or no shoulder is bordered by concrete walls. Any time a motor vehicle incident occurs two things happen, first traffic has nowhere to go and it turns into a parking lot. Second, it is almost impossible for first responders to get to a scene and then even worse getting a wrecker to the scene. This was the case Saturday night. As David and his family sat in line waiting in traffic with hundreds of other vehicles. It was then that 28-year-old Cory Messer of Spring was traveling southbound on I-69 in a Dodge 2500 Commercial van owned by Gulf Coast Fiber Services slammed into Kumars Toyota at highway speed. The van then clipped a Chevrolet Tahoe damaging the right rear of the Tahoe. As the Toyota rotated from the collision it clipped the rear of a Chevrolet pickup. Neal and Ravi Kumar, the two teens were in the back seat of the Toyota. Neal was killed instantly. Cleveland firefighters were able to get Ravi out of the vehicle and start CPR. Life Flight was en route, however, with Life Flight minutes out the EMS crew of Allegiance EMS made a decision to transport Ravi to HCA Hospital in Cleveland. He was pronounced deceased shortly after they arrived at HCA. David Kumar and his wife were released from the hospital just after midnight with non-life-threatening injuries. Messer, the driver of the striking van was not injured but was transported to the hospital for a mandatory blood draw. The driver of the Tahoe and the occupants of the Chevrolet pickup were not injured. I-69 was closed until after 10 pm as Cleveland Police investigated the crash.
