Just after midnight Friday a Houston man was traveling eastbound on South Street at an extremely high rate of speed in his Toyota Camry. The driver ran through a stop sign, crossed three lanes of the southbound feeder of the West Sam Houston Toll Road and slammed into the concrete wall of the freeway. A paramedic with a private ambulance was first on the scene and attempted to aid the driver, however, he was trapped and the car which was standing on its nose straight up was not stable. After several minutes she could see there was no way without him being freed first. She remained even after Houston Police pleaded with her to get out of the car as it was rocking and they feared it would tip over. Moments later Houston Fire Department arrived on the scene and was able to stabilize the car with jacks but the male driver was deceased. One Houston Police Department Sgt. said in 16 years he had not seen the damage of that magnitude. He said Toyota did a good job at design on the vehicle as instead of the engine pushing into the passenger compartment, the entire aluminum block engine crushed like a tin can.
