Fatality Accident: A motorcycle accident on U.S. 90 in Dayton claimed the life of a Baytown man Saturday afternoon. Dayton Police Cpl. Danny Carr said the motorcyclist was traveling eastbound when he crashed into the back of a slowing SUV. Justice of the Peace Pct. 4 Barry Graves pronounced the motorcyclist – Donald Reasoner Jr, age 50, of Baytown – dead at the wreck scene and ordered an autopsy. The passenger – 41-year-old Tammy Russell of Baytown – was taken by LifeFlight air ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston.  


School Zone/Bus Safety: Today marks the start of school across the area. With that in mind, motorists are urged to take extra caution. As a reminder, Texas law prohibits vehicles passing any school bus that is stopped with its lights flashing. Motorists are also reminded there is a ban against the use of handheld communication devices by those operating a motor vehicle in a designated school zone. There are two affirmative defenses to prosecution - #1 using a handheld phone to call for help from an emergency response service or #2 if the school zone does not have posted signage. In Liberty County, those signs are posted in at least some school zones in the cities of Liberty, Cleveland, Devers, Hardin, Tarkington and Hull-Daisetta, By decision of Dayton City Council, that city does not have those signs. 


Otto Seeks Reelection: State Representative John Otto of Dayton has announced he is seeking reelection to the Texas House of Representatives. The Dayton native was first elected to the Texas House in 2004. He serves District 18, which includes all of Liberty, San Jacinto and Walker counties.
