CAR NEARLY CUT IN TWO BY UTILITY POLE

Just before 12:30 pm Porter Fire received a call for a major accident with entrapment on Sorters Road just north of North Park. They arrived to find a utility pole in the front seat of the vehicle with the driver. They also learned a 9-year-old girl had been sitting in the front seat but had escaped and was walking around. In addition, an 8-year-old boy had been in the back seat without a seatbelt and was not showing any signs of trauma. The male driver of the vehicle was trapped for close to 30-minutes as crews worked to free him from between the center console and the utility pole. He was transported to the hospital in stable condition and was talking to rescuers though the entire operation. Due to the severity of the crash and the female child having some internal pain the two children were transported to Texas Children’s Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. The father was taken to Kingwood Hospital. Firefighters worked with the pole cracked in two and the overhead lines still energized. DPS cited the driver on at least four charges including no driver’s license or insurance. According to a witness who was working on the water plane next to the scene. The vehicle was northbound on Sorters when it came around the curve on the wet road. The vehicle went to the ditch, hit the end of a driveway, and launched, almost hitting the first set of lines some 16-feet off the ground. The left wheel from the vehicle was found in the brush close to 100-feet away. Saddle Creek Towing removed the vehicle from the scene.
