Early this morning a Ford Fiesta was southbound on FM 1314 between Gulf Coast Road and SH 242. For unknown reasons the driver crossed the center line and struck a northbound Chevrolet pickup. Three persons were injured in the Fiesta and transported to the hospital. The driver of the pickup was uninjured. A northbound Walmart 18-wheeler’s fuel tank was struck and punctured when the axle broke off one of the vehicles.The driver is credited for keeping the leaking fuel contained by removing his mattress from the trucks sleeper and using it as a sponge to absorb the leaking fuel.
FM 114 has just reopened.
