Dustin Parmely Killed, Aaron Johnson Injured in Tomball, TX, Accident
Tomball, TX -- May 8, 2017, Dustin Parmely was killed and Aaron Johnson was injured following an accident where their car crashed off-road.
Magnolia and Tomball emergency rescue crews were called to the accident scene, which they say took place at the intersection of Highway 249 and Pinedale Circle.
According to preliminary accident reports, 22-year-old Johnson was driving a Pontiac G8 along the highway with 19-year-old Parmely as a passenger. As they did so, a vehicle entered their path from Pinedale Circle. In an attempt to avoid a collision, their car lost control and crashed off the side of the road. The vehicle overturned several times, critically injuring the two men.
EMS arrived on the scene and transported both men to nearby hospitals. Parmely eventually died from his injuries. Johnson was later taken to Memorial Hermann for further treatment.
At this time, police have not reported any charges or citations resulting from the accident. Investigations are ongoing.
Map of the Area
I've seen some reports indicating that Mr. Johnson may have been speeding leading up to the accident, but they're also saying a vehicle pulled out in front of them. There was no indication as to whether or not that vehicle remained at the scene, but we can see that accident isn't as simple as "car runs off the road and crashes."
Any accident where someone is hurt or killed warrants further investigations to determine exactly what contributed to the accident. There could be many factors which simultaneously caused the accident, and preliminary police reports are often not enough to address all of the factors. In order for those affected to find some sort of relief during this time of hardship, there needs to be a thorough investigation independent of the police. Having an experienced professional examine the accident is the first step on the path to resolution.
