Sunday afternoon, Punkin Evergreen Firefighters and San Jacinto County EMS responded to a crash on Hwy 150 at Black Branch Rd. An SUV left the roadway and flipped end over end striking several trees.
Upon their arrival, PEVFD Firefighters determined that the female driver was deceased but her 2-month-old son was secured in a safety seat and had survived.
A PHI Helicopter was called to the scene due to the infant’s injuries. The on-duty New Waverly Fire Department District Chief responded and assisted with the infants care until the helicopter’s arrival and he was then transported to the Houston Medical Center.
Prayers for the child and his family, and for the Punkin Evergreen personnel who responded to this tragic incident.
