CONROE TEXAS – On Sunday afternoon around 1pm, September 20, 2015, four members of the Sedlmeier family died in a wreck that also injured three others on SH 105 near Marina Drive in front of Conroe Fire Station Number 6. Ronald Cooper, 68 of Montgomery, had just left church when he was heading westbound in his 2011 Hyundai Azera sedan alongside the family’s 2001 Toyota Echo sedan. His vehicle struck their car and caused it to spin into oncoming traffic. A blue Jeep Wrangler with a 16-year-old male driver and a 15-year-old male passenger heading eastbound hit the family’s car, killing everyone in the Toyota. The victims in the fatality accident included Roland Sedlmeier, 49; Melinda Sedlmeier, 42; Harley Sedlmeier, 6; and Sofie Sedlmeier, 4. The two teenagers from the Jeep were treated at Conroe Regional Medical Center.  Mr. Cooper was also injured in the accident. Mr. Cooper had been taking medication for his diabetes and for a blood clot in his brain, but he was not drinking, according to his daughter Angela when she spoke with KHOU 11 News.
