After 10 p.m. Tuesday night Splendora Fire Department responded to a major accident on Daw Collins Road near Morgan Cemetery. When they arrived they found a white pickup had struck a pine tree head-on. With the tree arcing in the power lines crews worked to free one person that was injured. He and his female passenger stated it was a friend that was driving the truck and fled the scene.
They only knew the first name of the driver but after further questioning by Sheriff’s deputies she admitted the man being removed from the truck was in fact the driver.
He was transported to Conroe Regional Hospital in stable condition. She was taken to Kingwood with minor injuries.
