Just after 1 a.m. a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputy stopped a red Monte Carlo at SH 242 and Od Houston. Before the Deputy could approach the vehicle to learn the driver had a possible warrant , the driver fled north on Old Houston at close to 100 mph at times. As he approached the intersection of FM 1485 he did not realize the pavement in the intersection was elevated. As the driver became air borne going over one hundred feet before striking the ground and losing control. The Monte Carlo went through a ditch, rolled over and came to rest on the front porch of Tomas Adkins.
Adkins who was asleep upstairs thought he awoke to bullets hitting the front of the house. His wife who was asleep in the living room quickly awoke also. It was then that they realized they had a vehicle upside down on the front porch. The front door and front wall was partially caved in.
The driver was quickly taken into custody.
This was not his first wreck this year either. On January 23, 2013 he drove his Ford F-250 off of I-69 and hit the guy wire of a utility pole causing the truck to climb it. At that time he suffered minor injuries and was transported to the hospital to be checked out.
