The driver of a late model Hyundai Accent exited her vehicle off 190 West and allowed it to roll down a steep embankment, then left the scene.
Driver Sends Car Down Embankment, Leaves Scene, Returns Naked, SPRING CREEK, January 9, 2018 - According to a caller to the Polk County Sheriff's Office, at approximately 7:50 pm on January 8, 2018, the driver of a red, late model, Hyundai Accent was east-bound on US-190 West. The driver pulled her car to the shoulder of the road on the east-bound side, exited the vehicle, and let it roll down a steep embankment to the woodline. Sergeant Byron Dunaway with the Polk County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the scene along with Trooper Allen Stanton with the Texas Highway Patrol. The driver had walked away from the scene. During investigation, the driver, Lisa Hunt, 55, of Trinity, returned to the scene, naked. Hunt quietly came walking up to the scene, out of the darkness, with no shoes and no clothes at all, in chilly weather. The officers began questioning Hunt.
(Editor's Note: I was wearing a large hoodie and gave it to Hunt to cover herself as I had a long sleeve thermal shirt on).
Soon, Deputies Kayla Hemperly and Teddy Sims arrived on the scene. Hunt appeared to be highly intoxicated. She told the officers that they were evil and looked bad and to go away. The officers summoned an ambulance from Americare Ambulance Service. Hunt refused to come with the officers. The officers were forced to place cuffs on Hunt and eventually got her to the shoulder and put her in the back of a heated patrol unit. Hunt eventually admitted to having smoked methamphetamine prior to the incident. She stated that the reason she let her car roll down the embankment is because she was afraid to drive over a small creek bridge because of monsters. After being checked and cleared by EMS personnel, Hunt was placed under arrest for public intoxication. Her vehicle was recovered by Ken's Towing and will be stored at Pollock's Body Shop in Livingston.
