Shortly after 10 am a Ford SUV was traveling at a high rate of speed north on FM 1485 when he ran off the road just before Old Houston Road. His vehicle went into the ditch, hit the sloped culvert pipe and went airborne across the Corner Store driveway. His vehicle struck the utility pole almost five feet off the ground and came to rest in the ditch on Old Houston. The driver was not injured.
A female motorist traveling south on FM 1485 struck the guy wire that fell across the road in front of her as the power pole fell. The cable lifted her vehicle off the ground, coming back down with the guy wire embedded in her front bumper. She was not injured.
The roadway reopened just before 11:30am when Entergy was able to cut the guy wire from across the road.
