Just before 4 pm a BMW passed a DPS Trooper on the southbound feeder of US 59 between SH 242 and Roman Forest at 130mph. DPS initiated a pursuit. With many municipalities in East Montgomery County, several started to head his way. As they approached Roman Forest the vehicle attempted a right turn onto Willshire Drive. As it did at high speed the vehicle failed to negotiate the turn into the dead end subdivision. The vehicle crossed the median and slammed into a sign at a business complex on the southwest corner. Two females and a male jumped out and started to run. Multiple units responded to assist DPS who was now 3 against one on a felony stop. The Trooper quickly got the male in custody but the females fled into the woods after running out of their sandals. Units converged on the area along with a drone, K-9 and DPS Air unit. A short time later a resident reported two females walking down Willshire. Units quickly took them into custody as the Trooper identified them as the ones that ran. Where the vehicle crashed after hitting the sign it was stopped by an electrical pole. If it had missed it would have slammed into a pickup truck in the parking lot and into the “Sno Queen” snowball business which just opened at the location for business. The three were taken to Kingwood Medical to be checked as the crash caused the airbags to deploy. An assortment of drugs was found in the vehicle. Many areas around Montgomery County have several Municipal Police Departments, However, the US 59 corridor is almost unmatched. As with the pursuit today DPS was assisted by, Montgomery County Precinct 4, Woodbranch, Roman Forest, Patton Village, Splendora, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
