Spring, Texas – December 13, 2018: Bizarre details have surfaced following a horrific crash that left two people dead and injured four others Wednesday on the Grand Parkway.
The at fault driver has been identified as Charles Glaze (54), who was out on bond on a previous criminal charge in Montgomery County, officials say.
Witnesses say Glaze crossed the median into oncoming traffic and hit a metal guard rail, which sent the vehicle airborne and struck four vehicles traveling eastbound on the Grand Parkway.
Two people were pronounced deceased on the scene; Michael Brown and Jane Doe.
Four other people including Glaze were transported to the hospital with injuries but are all expected to survive. Glaze was reportedly wearing an ankle monitor when he was pulled from the vehicle by first responders.
Investigators with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office say that Glaze did not appear to be intoxicated and said he is cooperating with their investigation. No charges have been filed at the time this story went to press.
Speed does not appear to be a factor, officials say. Glaze appeared to be traveling at the posted speed limit of 75 miles per hour.
Glaze reportedly has a history of seizures, according to investigators, however they were not sure if he was cleared by a doctor to drive.
Not only does Glaze have a history of seizures, he also has a criminal history, as he was charged in Montgomery County in 2017 for aggravated kidnapping and assault.
In 2017, Glaze attacked a woman while she was visiting her son’s gravesite. He assaulted her with a taser and used zip ties to tie the woman up. According to court records, the woman managed to escape.
Glaze was released in June of 2017 on a $250,000 bond and the requirement to wear an ankle monitor as part of his release.
Sgt. Albers said this was the worst accident he has worked during his 23 year tenure with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
The accident remains under investigation by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Vehicular Crimes Division.
