CRASH CLOSES DAW COLLINS ROAD
Just before 5 pm a male driver was southbound on Daw Collins from Morgan Cemetery in the Splendora area when he left the roadway , struck a utility pole and flipped the vehicle. The driver appears unhurt and refused medical attention. He passed field sobriety tests for DPS but the 7000 volt power line is still hot and down. Entergy has a pole crew enroute to replace the pole and restring the lines. At this time power remains on as they are going to try to keep it this way.
Daw Collins from FM 2090 to Morgan Cemetery will be closed until at least 8pm
But thank goodness for Dish the football is not being missed by emergency crews as they await line repairs to get to the upside down vehicle in the woods.
