Driver Rolls SUV, Flees Scene, ONALASKA, June 20, 2009 - At 10:10 pm on June 19, 2009, a gray 1995 Nissan Pathfinder was north-boud on FM-3152 when the vehicle left the road to the left and rolled. The vehicle crashed through a fence right above a natural gas pipeline. The vehicle came to rest upside down above the pipeline. According to witnesses, the driver crawled from the wreckage and fled the scene. DPS Trooper Chris Stanbery was dispatched to the scene of the accident. The vehicle is owned by a resident of Point Blank, and a wallet was found in the vehicle with the Texas Driver's License still inside (a resident of Point Blank). Witnesses said the vehicle occupant fled on foot west-bound into the nearby woods. At time of press, the accident remains under investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety. The vehicle was recovered by a rollback wrecker from George White & Sons Wrecker Service.
Editor's Note: Most of the time when a person has an accident and then flees the scene, he (or she) does so because they're intoxicated and do not want to be arrested for driving while intoxicated.
A wrecker from George White & Sons turns the vehicle upright.
