Montgomery County, TX -- September 8, 2021, a 40-year-old Coldspring man was killed when a pickup truck crashed into a tree on Farm to Market Road 1097 in Montgomery County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 6:00 p.m. on FM 1097 East near Tanyard Road. Preliminary investigation suggests the victim was driving a Nissan Titan pickup truck on the roadway when the driver attempted to pass a Dodge Journey near Rose Road. Reports indicate the Titan driver did not fully exit the right lane during the pass, causing the pickup to sideswipe the Journey. The impact caused the vehicles to leave opposite sides of the roadway and the Titan then crashed into a tree on its driver-side door.

The Titan driver was pronounced dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

No further information is currently available.
