A Tomball man was killed and his son was severely injured, following a crash May 25 on FM 2978, near Dobbin-Hufsmith Road.
State troopers responded to the scene around 9 p.m. to find Magnolia firefighters working to remove victims from two vehicles. All three were in critical condition and transported to area hospitals via Life Flight.
Troopers said a 1997 Nissan driven by Piper Landon, 21, of The Woodlands, was traveling northbound and crossed the center line. The car crashed head on with a 2003 Subaru SUV, driven by Julio Reyes, 42, of Tomball. Reyes’ 15-year-old son was also in the car.
All three were transported to Hermann Memorial in Houston, where Julio Reyes was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Troopers and Mont-gomery County District Atttorney's office investigators spent five hours at the scene, while also reconstructing the accident.
According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, state trooper Sgt. Terry Barnhill believed that alcohol was a factor in the crash and may be the reason Landon crossed the center line.
