Approximately 3:30p.m. an accident occurred at the intersection of FM 3083 and Ave M. One of the vehicles driven by a Hispanic male struck the utility pole dropping electric wires down and cutting power to the area. The pole was sheered in two.
The Hispanic male fled on foot into the woods. Conroe Police set a perimeter but were unable to apprehend the suspect. Several officers fought the dense wooded area and vines in the area.
Entergy is now on the scene and having to replace the entire pole.
Traffic is being turned around and rerouted. As the patrol cars blocked the road another Hispanic male driving a maroon Mustang drove around the patrol car and almost into the scene. Officers immediately stopped him and as he was stepping out of the car they discovered cocaine on the front seat and marijuana in the back along with two open beer cans. He was arrested.
As of 6:00 pm it could be several hours yet this intersection is closed. Public Works is currently setting barricades in the intersection.
