That's crazy, i just read the storey on Channel 13's website, apparently he was just a passenger, the driver and a teen aged girl only received minor injuries! Ran into the bulkhead! OMG I'd like to know the rest of the story.

Sounds like liquor was involved.

Probably throttled up, froze up and smacked it like when some folk are learning on a motorcycle and go all whiskey throttle.

I read through all of the news reports in Houston about this and it is amazing that they were covering the same incident. All are consistent on one thing, alcohol was not an issue. They hit a bulkhead, only a few of those on Conroe. And if you have never been on there at night it is easy to get disoriented.

Here is the best of the reports.
