CONROE, TX – A motorcyclist was left in critical condition after being rear-ended by an allegedly impaired driver near an intersection north of Conroe late last night, according to Montgomery County Police Reporter.

The crash occurred near the intersection of FM 1484 Road and FM 2432 Road/Willis Waukegan Road at 10:15 p.m., as a woman driving a 2014 Plymouth Town & Country van was driving at a high rate of speed.

She collided with the back of a 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, causing its driver to be ejected from the vehicle. The motorcyclist hit the van’s windshield, and the motorcycle was sent onto the median and across the roadway.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital in Conroe with critical injuries.

The driver of the van, who is suspected of having been under the influence, was taken in for a blood draw.

The accident remains under investigation.
