Just after 4 a.m. this morning Porter Fire Department was dispatched to a major accident on Loop 494 at Community Drive. When they arrived on the scene they found a silver Chrysler 300 that had struck a power pole and was under the lines.
The driver Cody Kiser, 17, of Porter did not have a scratch on him. He was already out of the vehicle.
Due to the crash over 1250 Entergy customers are without power south of Community Drive and east of 59. This could be the situation for several hours as Entergy crews are assembling to start the work of replacing poles and the hardware on those poles.
With the vehicle under the lines wreckers have not been able to move the vehicle.
The driver who has no drivers license snuck the vehicle away from his home as his parents slept for a trip to Walmart in Porter. Along with him was the families dog, a pug which fled the scene into the woods and has not been found.
The parents were called and arrived on the scene a short time later. After discussing the situation with DPS the decision was made to file unauthorized use of a motor vehicle charges on the younger Kiser.
Further investigation revealed a Walmart bag with a new can of Dust-Off which Kiser admitted to huffing just before the accident.
He was transported to the Montgomery County Jail by DPS Trooper Sutton.
