Conroe and Austin, February 15 – Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough, an abuser of Ambien, a downer, and amphetamine, an upper, who pled guilty to Driving While Intoxicated after a major double hit-and-run car wreck he caused on September 10, 2020, caused an eerily similar wreck in Austin on First Street in the downtown area on March 28, 2017. The full 2017 police report appears at the bottom of this article.
After the 2017 wreck, which Keough caused because he was sound asleep while driving his Lexus down First Street at 7:44 a.m., Tuesday, March 28, 2017, Keough explained that he did not have a stroke but was merely “tired.” Keough claimed he had worked too late the previous evening.
Keough, who at the time was 63 years old, drove his Lexus, which he leased from Northside Lexus in Houston.
A loaded flatbed truck was southbound in the left lane, stopped at a light at West Mary Street, waiting to turn left.
Keough traveled northbound in the left lane. Witnesses observed Keough swerving into oncoming traffic several times prior to the impact. Keough crossed the double yellow line and struck the front left of the stopped flatbed truck, causing Keough to spin around onto the curb due the high rate of speed of the impact.
The flatbed truck driver observed Keough slumped over unconscious against the driver’s side window of his Lexus prior to the collision.
While medical providers initially thought Keough had suffered a stroke, Keough told the public that he did not have a stroke at all.
Keough is a long-term abuser of Ambien, a powerful downer, which many individuals abuse as a sleep aid. After the 2020 accident in The Woodlands, the Texas Department of Public Safety found that Keough had both Ambien, the downer, and amphetamine, a powerful upper, in his system. Of course, Ambien abusers often use amphetamines to attempt to make themselves conscious after a night of Ambien-induced sleep.
Keough continued to drive a vehicle between the 2017 accident and the 2020 accident. He lost his Texas Drivers License after the September 2020 accident, but, unfortunately, he regained it in 2021.
Keough often comes into Commissioners Court meetings slurring his speech and exhibiting difficulty following the proceedings.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Precinct 2 Montgomery County Commissioner Charlie Riley who controls three of the five votes on the Commissioners Court, enjoys having Keough as County Judge, because Keough goes along with every spending proposal Riley and his pro-Big-Government majority seek.
Midwest Recovery Centers in Kansas City regularly observes that drug abusers lie. It should further come has no surprise that Keough has repeatedly lied to voters (1) that he never shut down Montgomery County on March 27, 2020, (2) that he never closed down Montgomery County churches on March 27, 2020, (3) that he never imposed an adult curfew on March 27, 2020, and (4) that he was never caused a major hit-and-run double car accident while doped up on Ambien and amphetamine. “Ambien Blackout” is a major problem, which drug abusers and their families should confront and not permit to linger.
