LEAGUE CITY — Two people were flown by helicopter to Houston early Sunday morning after the motorcycle they were riding on was hit by a drunken driver.
Joshua Vanness, 21, of Pasadena was arrested and charged with intoxication assault, a third-degree felony, following the incident at 2:15 a.m. on FM 646.
Police said the Honda Civic that Vannes was driving left its lane and moved into oncoming traffic where it collided with a motorcycle carrying a man and woman.
The victims of the crash were flown by helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
Police officials said the man was not wearing a helmet and suffered a head injury. The woman suffered a compound fracture to one of her legs. Their conditions were unknown Sunday evening.
Vanness and a female passenger in the Civic were uninjured. Vanness was held on $25,000 bond.
While police were conducting their investigation of that incident, another driver ignored the police roadblock and tried to drive around the scene, then ignored police orders to stop before being arrested.
The 22-year-old driver of that car was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated.
