Jose Conejo Injured in Single-Vehicle Accident on Scotty Lane in Montgomery County, TX

Montgomery County, TX — January 3, 2023, 29-year-old Jose Conejo was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident on Scotty Lane in Montgomery County.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:20 p.m. on Scotty near Davis Street. Preliminary investigation suggests Conejo was driving a Chevy C2500 pickup southwest on Scotty when he may have lost control for unknown reasons. The pickup ran off the road in a curve; it and its attached trailer jackknifed and the truck then crashed into a tree.

No further information is currently available.

In my experience people are unfortunately pretty quick to write single-vehicle accidents like this off as the driver's fault, but they rarely consider all the ways things could be more complex. Authorities mentioned distraction and impairment as potential factors in the wreck on Scotty Lane, but I hope they're not so stuck on those that they ignore the many others that might have contributed.

I'm not saying I know something police don't, and evidence may yet show their conclusions were correct. I just know from long experience that things aren't always as simple as preliminary reports make them seem, and if there's more to the story that gets ignored that's hardly fair to the victim. Hopefully authorities will make sure that strictly facts and not assumptions fill in the remaining blanks in Montgomery County.
