Firefighters Rescue Driver Who Runs Out Of Road Crashes Deep In The Forest
Thursday, May 5th, 2022

From Montgomery County Police Reporter:

At 11 pm Needham Fire was dispatched to a major crash at FM 1488 and College Park Drive just outside The Woodlands. The first unit arrived and was directed by witnesses to the wooded area of the State Forest. Witnesses say the 2017 Chevrolet pickup was traveling in excess of 80 mph north on College Park when the driver approached the T-intersection of FM 1488. He made it halfway through the intersection and went airborne. The truck landed on the shoulder of the roadway, hit the ditch, and again went airborne. after crossing the ditch he went into the forest cutting a large pine tree off approximately five feet off the ground. He continued another one hundred fifty feet through and over the trees and thick brush. Firefighters had to use chainsaws to cut their way into the victim who was trapped in the truck. Woodlands Fire Rescue was then dispatched to assist. Once to the victim who appeared intoxicated, he told firefighters his mother had been with him. Even though no passenger airbag had deployed which is consistent with no weight on the passenger seat firefighters searched anyhow. As crews worked close to thirty minutes to free him others looked for what he said was his mother but later changed it to the fact his children had been with him. Nobody else was found. He was transported with facial injuries to the hospital in stable condition. With is so deep in the woods a regular wrecker could not handle it. A heavy-duty wrecked was called in and he to have problems. First, as his truck went back to far off the pavement. Woodlands Rescue has to rig its winch to pull the wreck back to the pavement. For the next two-hours firefighters worked with the wrecker driver trying to maneuver the truck out of the woods using snatch blocks as they did.. The truck was finally removed just after 1:30 am. Firefighters then had to cut trees out of the truck that it had picked up during the crash and recovery. The site has been the location of multiple fatal crashes as the drivers ran off the end of the road even though signs are present. Weather conditions at the time of the crash were clear as the fog had not yet started to roll in.
