FOG CAUSES DRIVING PROBLEMS

Just after 9am this morning Agapito Arroyo of Cleveland was southbound on Crockett Martin Road in his 2001 Chevrolet pickup. With two other riders they were on their way to a landscape job and pulling the equipment trailer behind them. Due to speed and limited visibility in the fog they were unable to stop for the stop sign at FM 2090.

Willie Lincoln Jr. was westbound in his 1986 International truck pulling an empty 1969 pole trailer. He was on his way to FM 1488 and I 45 to pick up a load of logs. As he approached the intersection, Arroyo came out onto FM2090 directly in front of him. Attempting to avoid a crash he was able to veer to the east bound lane. The trailer then slid sideways striking the guardrail causing approximately $6000 damage to the rail. One witness was unable to believe how the truck driver handled the truck in a manner to avoid striking the pickup.

With no damage to either vehicle and no on injured they waited for law enforcement. Within seconds another vehicle stopping in the for directly behind them was rear ended by yet another vehicle. Again no injuries but for fifteen minutes squeals could be heard in the fog as other vehicles tried to, and did avoid collision.

Arroyo was cited for failure to stop for a stop sign.

Caney Creek Fire Department was able to cut the guardrail away from the roadway to reopen FM 2090 which had been closed almost an hour.
