  • Published on Apr 11, 2018
  • Just after 2:30 pm Jazmine Jones was southbound on I-45 from Huntsville to her job at HEB in Conroe. She saw a northbound maroon KIA go to the inside shoulder then go airborne, cutting through the safety wires separating lanes and slammed into her vehicle just behind the driver’s door. The vehicle then began to flip and landed on a silver Malibu causing the Malibu to shift from one lane to the other in front of a Houston bound Mega bus. The bus slammed into the Malibu trapping the female driver of the Malibu. The bus driver, carrying at least 75-passengers started to veer into the ditch and roll over. However, riders on the bus said the female driver dis a fantastic job of maintaining control of the bus. Vincent Tran, who was a passenger on the double decker bus said it felt like the bus was going to roll on it’s side, but the driver was able to recover it. Two passengers on the bus were injured. One who fell and a second who did not have a seat belt on and went into the top deck windshield. New Waverly Fire Department requested Life Flight which transported the driver of the Malibu to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where she later died. The driver of the Kia was also killed. DPS Troopers who were working at the weight station scrambled to get to the scene to assist. North Montgomery County Fire Department and MCHD also responded. Both north and southbound lanes were closed for several hours. US 75 was backed up through Willis. Montgomery County Precinct One Constable Phillip Cash pulled his deputies in and began working with traffic including stopping people from turning around on the freeway, going the wrong way to exit on entrance ramps. A Mega bus was dispatched from Houston to pick up the passengers and continue their trip to Houston. DPS Sgt. Buress stated the speed limit in the construction zone is 55 and 65 in a few places and drivers are not obeying the law by traveling through the area at excessive speed.

    The cable dividers are known to fail to keep vehicles from crossing over into oncoming traffic. They are cheaper than the normal steel or concrete dividers. In theory when hit they are supposed to "guide" vehicles back on to the correct side of the road. However, they often get ridden over or low vehicles go under them.This can result in decapitation. ALSO notice the next time you see one damaged. Note that the cables are anchored into the ground at long distances meaning if you hit one in the vacinity of a damaged cable it will NOT prevent a vehicle from crossing over. Again, cost vs. lives. Sad.

    Been driving 18 wheels here for nearly 25 years. The two most deadliest accidents I have seen the most of are excessive speed and following too close. The cure because people don't care whether they live or die out here or kill someone else is an electronic device on vehicle that when it's activated by a checkpoint which also detects when speed is over the limit it sends you a speeding ticket in the mail. Only way this will ever stop. Federal Law needs to mandate as well for cell carriers to equip phones to not work while in motion. Cure for texting as well. Should have been implemented years ago by the FTSB.

    This is sad but people will never stop driving at a high rate of speed. I live in Texas as well and am concerned every day on my commute.

      You are right! It's not just Texas drivers....we have speeders everywhere. Stay safe & always, ALWAYS WATCH THE OTHER DRIVERS.

    I’ve just returned from 3 weeks in the states and I have never seen so many drivers texting/ on the phone, watching the damn phone generally! At the wheel. Personally saw 2 rear end incident while I was there in the short time due to this I’m sure. You guys have a bad problem with phones over there. We have severe penalties here in the uk for even picking up the phone at the wheel, it’s become socially unacceptable.

    How can Jazmine afford a nice car like that working at a supermarket? In my country only doctors and businessmen can afford a Nissan Altima. Lucky Americans!

    • JELH
      JELH Year ago

      JaeJae HitUNYoFace, Kevin Patrick and MsShaye H I'm from Brazil. The Altima, Accord and Camry are very expensive luxury cars over here. The best selling car here is a coffin on wheels called Chevrolet Onix. In my country, the Corolla is a midsize car and it starts at 90k brazilian reais, which is about 27k U.S dollars. Would you pay that much for a base Corolla?

    I live right here in Conroe. It's ridiculous how many of you fly right on by me when I go 65 on the Interstate. Everyone wants to speed, until they hit something.

    • Reverend Dickie
      Reverend Dickie Year ago +1

      The idea that you can receive a citation for going the speed limit is a myth. Texas Law states that you must go the Speed Limit. No faster, but under certain conditions you may go 5 MPH slower. However, this is where folks get pulled over... On a clear day, with normal traffic, going 5 under the limit is considered impeding traffic. To you folks who think it's a good idea to go the same speed as everyone else, keep this in mind... If there's an object in the road that you couldn't avoid in any way, and you hit it which causes you to lose control, resulting in you slamming into the back of a patrol car, killing the officer... Were you simply going the speed limit this would be considered a freak accident. But if you're going 66 MPH in a 65 MPH zone (yes, even one over according to Texas Law) then it's now considered Manslaughter and you're going to Prison for a very long time. So I say kiss my ass to every leadfoot, I'm not going to prison. I'm going the damn speed limit!

    • RJ Texas
      RJ Texas Year ago +1

      MsShaye H Actually, defensive driving, flow of traffic...if you are slower, you become an impeding hazard and can be ticketed for impeding traffic, even if the flow it's going 10 or more over the limit, or even be hit by another driver trying to get around you quickly, or they lose control as they make a snap movement trying to maneuver around you...any number of things can happen...

    • Ella Lynn

      You do end up having to speed up, or else, you become a Hazzard. Because then everyone is going around you (avoiding you). It becomes ridiculous when I speed up and even then, inevitably, some moron is on my bumper, so I have to faster. It's so bad that I'll take the side roads rather than the highway.

      MsShaye H Well unless you’re dense, it is quite obvious. lol Sorry to disappoint you, I don’t actually take, or need to take any medications. :) Also, who in the hell are you to tell me, or anyone else what they should find funny? lol I think a person who thinks that a sky fairy stepped in and saved them in any situation is humorous. Oh, and me thinking that it’s funny doesn’t make me a sick individual, I just don’t believe in such ridiculousness.

    • Shanny H

      Tat2Dragons Actually its not obvious! You are not in my mind to say wtf I knew. Are you off your medication or something?! And no, nothing is funny when it comes to god saving someone. You are sick in your mind for thinking that. Dumb for assuming you know wtf I know or knew!

      To me, those cables were placed in the medians to keep people from crossing over into oncoming traffic an traveling in the opposite direction of traffic flow. 2 of my best friend were killed coming from school shopping. It was our sophomore year of high school. A guy had stole a car an ran from the police as they attempted to initiate a stop. Instead, he crosses over the median, hit the truck my best friends were in, which entrapped them as it set a blazed.

      Dr. Mark in Texas It worries me too... I travel this highway everyday. This is just where the construction zone begins north bound an ends south bound. Speed limit the maroon truck SHOULD have been going was no more then 55 MPH. I was headed home when I noticed the chopper flying low. I knew something bad had happened just ahead. Prayers for the families. It's always an innocent victim. So so sad.

      JaeJae HitUNYoFace Thanks JJ and Zach, that's scary. I didn't know that was possible. A local private school here spent $750,000.00 on one to protect the playground. That worries me, now.

      I heard he was driving at a high rate of speed. The SUV he was driving is pretty light and that fence isn't very high. It's likely his car rolled right over it.

      jrftworth Year ago

      jamesbulldogmiller speed was probably one factor, but they were probably weaving in and out of traffic at the same time when they may have made an unsafe lane change, lost control left the roadway and across the median. I've investigated accidents for 14 years

    • jamesbulldogmiller

      Thanks for your insight.
      Did speed cause her to drift to the median?
      (just for my information...)
      And isn't it speed differential?
      Not just speed alone?
