Man Injured in Car Accident on Loop 494 Bridge in Montgomery County, TX

Montgomery County, TX -- June 12, 2022, one person was injured due to an accident where their car crashed into a closed off portion of Loop 494.

Initial reports from authorities said that the crash happened at around 3:00 a.m. along Loop 494 at the closed off Caney Creek bridge.

It appears a man drove into the barriers of the closed road, causing the vehicle to become stuck. That driver was taken to a hospital with reportedly non-life-threatening injuries. Investigations are ongoing.

Commentary on Car Accident on Loop 494 in Montgomery County

Someone crashing into a closed portion of a bridge--which has supposedly been closed for years and marked with bright barriers and signage--certainly raises some red flags. At 3:00 a.m., folks may just assume the driver was drunk. That's certainly possible and more than worth investigations, especially if a local bar illegally over-served the driver and can be liable for doing so. But what about other possible factors?

It may seem unlikely something like a medical condition or mechanical issue led to this crash, but it's not impossible. There's no telling what authorities might overlook if they don't take steps to ensure they're getting all the facts. That's why there often needs to be thorough independent investigations after a serious crash, and I don't currently see any reason why this incident would be an exception.
