One killed, two others injured in wreck near Conroe
CONROE, TX (KTRK) --
A father was killed and a mother is now in critical condition after an
accident in Conroe early this morning. Amazingly their young child, who
was also in the vehicle, was not seriously hurt.
This happened on Old Houston Road and Strevenson around 2am.
Authorities say a family of three was travelling southbound on Old
Houston Road when the driver lost control, hit a drainage pipe and
flipped over. It's still unclear why that driver lost control but there
are skid marks that indicate that he attempted to stop several feet
before striking the pipe.
The driver was trapped inside the
vehicle which was upside down when paramedics arrived. The wife was
ejected and a three or four-year-old toddler remarkably had escaped with
just scrapes and bruises and was walking around the scene when EMS
crews arrived on the scene.
The male driver was pronounced dead
at the scene. The woman who was revived by paramedics was taken to
Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands. She is listed in critical
There was a car seat inside the vehicle but the child had not apparently been strapped into it.
The victim hasn't been identified. The accident is under investigation.
