Joseph Conarroe, Mary Conarroe Injured in Car Accident in Crockett, TX

Houston County, TX — November 5, 2022, Joseph Conarroe and Mary Conarroe were injured after a car accident where a pickup hit them along Loop 304.

Investigators said that the crash took place at around noon along Loop 304 in the area of Porter Road.

Their statements indicate that 72-year-old Mary Conarroe was driving a Subaru Ascent with 71-year-old Joseph Conarroe riding as a passenger. As their vehicle was rounding a curve along northbound lanes, the vehicle slowed to make a right turn. While they slowed, a pickup failed to control speed and rear-ended the Conarroes' vehicle.

Both Joseph and Mary Conarroe were injured, with Joseph said to have incapacitating injuries. The other driver wasn't hurt. Police say inattention was a contributing factor in the crash, but they did not elaborate.

If it's true that inattention was a factor here, then I'm sure I'm not alone wondering if the driver was on their phone. It's a big problem nowadays, and it causes all kinds of chaos as drivers take their eyes off the road.

Of course, it's possible this all could be the result of other factors. There may have been other distractions, such as with the stereo or objects in the vehicle. It could even be police jumped to conclusions and overlooked something less common, like mechanical issues or road hazards. One way or another, it's important that victims and families know both what happened and why it happened. I see no reason why this situation would be an exception.
