SILSBEE, TX (February 12, 2024)Brenon Proulx was arrested, and three others were killed Friday night in a motorcycle crash on Farm-to-Market Road 327.

The incident occurred at approximately 6:30 p.m., near Mile Marker 748 on February 2nd.

According to reports, Proulx was driving a 2006 Saturn Ion west when he crossed into the eastbound lanes. The Saturn then collided with a 2015 Harley Davidson and a 2005 Harley Davidson.

39-year-old James Means was operating the 2005 Harley Davidson, while the 2015 Harley Davidson was being driven by 37-year-old Allen Wesenberg, accompanied by a 12-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy.

Despite attempts to save his life, Means succumbed to his injuries at the accident site. Wesenberg and the two children were transported to Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital. Due to the severity of their injuries, Wesenberg and the 12-year-old girl later passed away at the hospital.
