At 8 a.m. Thanksgiving morning a Chevrolet Impala was north bound on FM 1010 in Plum Grove, Liberty County when it left the roadway and struck a tree.

Plum Grove Fire Department was dispatched to the scene. When they arrived they discovered the front seat passenger trapped. A call was put in for Cleveland and Splendora to assist with the rescue and stabilizing  the four occupants. Life Flight was dispatched from the Baytown base. Liberty County Sheriff’s Department Deputy McQueen and Splendora Fire Department assisted in setting up the landing zone on the FM 2090 bridge.
