BARRETT STATION – A local pickup was mangled and Lifeflight helicopters had to standby as Crosby Volunteer Fire Dept. attempted to rescue a pickup driver in critical condition after a roadway crash with a truck from a sand mining operation.
The accident occurred just before 7:00 a.m. last Thursday on Crosby-Lynchburg Rd. near Floy.
The driver of the tractor trailer truck said he was pulling onto Crosby-Lynchburg when the pickup smashed into the rear of the trailer.
A man driving the car was trapped for a half hour before Crosby VFD could free him with the jaws of life.
Harris County Sheriff’s Traffic Investigators continue to look into the circumstances.
