According to reports, the accident happened on Highway 105 near Walden Road. Authorities say the motorcyclist was killed during the accident.
Texas DPS Sergeant Erik Burse said, “We have a motorcycle that was traveling westbound on state Highway 105. We had a Montgomery County deputy that was exiting southbound from a private drive. Once he exited, there was a collision.”
At the time of this report, the cause of the accident is still unknown. Also, no eyewitnesses to this crash have come forward. It is also unclear if the motorcyclist was fully at fault, or the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy contributed in some way.

Highway 105 was closed for several hours in both directions following the crash. The highway was only opened once the on-site investigation was completed and the deputy’s vehicle and the motorcycle were removed from the scene.
