A Montgomery Independent School District elementary teacher died when the SUV she and her daughter were driving was hit head-on by another car on FM 2854. According to Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) investigators, the GMC Yukon driven by Jennifer Runnels was heading east on the road, when a silver Chevrolet Impala heading on the opposite lane crossed the median, slamming head-on into Runnels car.
The collision killed the driver of the Chevrolet, Floyd Nelms. Runnels leaves behind a 10-year old daughter, who was airlifted to a nearby hospital where she currently remains in critical condition. Officials from Montgomery ISD, where Runnels is a fourth grade teacher at Lone Star Elementary School, were heartbroken by the accident and said that they would deploy administrators and counselors to talk to the students and break the news to their parents.
