At 2am(new time) this morning a black Chevrolet truck driven by Isidro Latigo Jr. age 26, of Tomball was southbound on Interstate 45 just approaching Lake Woodlands when he ran off the right shoulder. On the shoulder was a Nissan Sentra which had been sitting there almost three days with a jack under it and spare tire next to it. The pickup struck it, sending it spinning into the main lanes. The driver of the truck was ejected through the top of the windshield leaving behind his hoodie. The driver landing on the right grass median area was treated by firefighters from the Needham Fire Department who had just finished running two major accidents just prior to this accident that required extensive manpower. He was transported by MCHD in critical condition to Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Troopers closed Interstate 45 for almost three hours as they investigated the accident. The massive cleanup of debris was also quite time consuming.
The interior of the truck was almost completely undamaged. The only thing in the drivers compartment were airbags ad a seatbelt still retracted in it’s original position. Seatbelts were not worn in this accident.
