Conroe, TX – One Man Killed & Another Injured In Interstate 45 Crash
Conroe, TX (June 19, 2019) – On June 19, during the early morning hours, emergency crews responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 45 near the exit for Highway 242 westbound.
Reports from police indicate a male was traveling along the roadway in a Toyota pickup truck when he struck barrels along the roadway as he attempted to exit the interstate. The impact of the collision caused his truck to flip upside down and slide approximately 100 feet down the roadway before stopping.
The driver of the pickup managed to climb out of his vehicle. As the man exited and stood up in the road, he was struck by another Toyota pickup truck in the roadway. The impact of the collision forced the driver up underneath both trucks, pinning him down. Crews worked at the scene for over two hours to remove the victim from the vehicle. The man was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The driver in the second truck was injured in the collision and transported to an area hospital. Authorities believe alcohol played a role in the collision and plan to charge the driver of the second vehicle with intoxication manslaughter.
