Just after 10pm. Wednesday a Geo Tracker was southbound on Firetower Road when the unidentified male left the right side of the roadway, overcorrected coming across to the left side of the roadway and flipped several times near the intersection of Wells Road.

When River Plantation Fire Department, who was backing in for New Caney Fire Department arrived on the scene they found the GEO upside down on top of the driver who was ejected. They were able to get him out as MCHD requested Air Medical.

As they worked on the man he went into traumatic arrest. The helicopter was cancelled and he was transported to Hermann Memorial-Woodlands in critical condition.

The road was closed for over and hour as DPS assisted by Precinct 4 and MCSO investigated the accident.

DPS Trooper Eric Lopez said that he believes alcohol was involved in the crash as there was an odor of alcohol on the victim and multiple iced beer cans littered the ground around the crash scene.
