Wet roads cause deadly crash on FM 1485
NEW CANEY, TX- A 34-year-old female driver died in a crash on FM 1485 caused by slick roads on April 5th, Click2Houston reports.
At 9p.m., close to Gene Campbell, the victim was driving very fast on the northbound lane of FM 1485. It eventually hit the left rear of a Jeep which caused the Toyota Corolla to go into the southbound lane. Authorities believe the wet road conditions contributed to this incident.
Once on the opposing lanes of FM 1485, the Toyota rolled into the path of a Ford F-150. This truck tore open the vehicle when it made impact with the passenger side and the roof. The at-fault female victim in the Toyota was then ejected and died on the scene.
The Jeep contained a female driver and two children but none were not injured. The two occupants of the Ford were hospitalized after being extracted by first responders. The driver had major injuries.
The road was reopened around midnight that night.
