Brandon Noah Killed in Montgomery County, TX Motorcycle Accident

Montgomery County, TX — June 16, 2022, 40-year-old Brandon Noah died in a traffic accident off Interstate 69 in Montgomery County.

According to reports the incident happened around 11:30 p.m. on the I-69 service road near Azalea Boulevard. Preliminary investigation suggests a Toyota Tacoma pickup was traveling southwest on the service road in the inside lane, followed at some distance by Noah on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

Reports suggest Noah, under the influence of alcohol, failed to control the bike's speed and crashed into the back of the pickup. He then lost control and the bike overturned, throwing Noah into the roadway.

Noah was pronounced dead at the scene. Blood tests later showed he had a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .251 at the time of the crash.

No further information is available at this time.

Commentary on Brandon Noah Accident in Montgomery County

Tests seem to have confirmed that the man killed in this accident was well over the legal limit for intoxication at the time. Some may think there's little else to say about that because there can be no legal consequences for him, but they may not be aware that another party--one that too often gets away with its role in alcohol-related wrecks--could be held responsible for his tragic death.

Under Texas dram shop law an alcohol provider cannot sell or serve drinks to an obviously intoxicated customer. Unfortunately many bars and other alcohol vendors do that all the time despite the laws against it. When they do and their customer causes or suffers injuries due to his impairment, that negligent business may be legally accountable for the damage done.

Not every DWI accident starts with a dram shop violation. Reports say the driver was intoxicated but don't mention where he drank, and I don't have more information than they provide. However, it's important to learn where the drinks came from since dram violations endanger both over-served customers and the public at large.

Despite that, law enforcement rarely tries very hard to track down law-breaking bars. If a dram violation is suspected victims and families are often best served by independent investigations rather than waiting on police to handle things. With the evidence of over-service that those investigators uncover, many folks are able to hold bad bars responsible for the terrible and irreversible damage they helped cause.
