Hit by black Caddilac lower left

Witnesses stated that this car ran the red light in the background and was hit by the silver car pictured upper right next to Rescue 13.


HWY 146 and Loop 197 North.
This car was hit by the one below left that witnesses stated ran the red light.

Witnesses stated that this car ran the red light and broadsided the car above right.
Note the cross by the pole from a previous wreck. This is one of the most dangerous intersections in town.


Firefighters from Station 2 use the airbags to lift the vehicle
off of the drivers legs. He was ejected and the car landed on his legs from the calves down. This type of accident happens in Texas City all the time as people continually speed through residential nieghborhoods.

Firefighters Duane Crawford and Joe Tumbleson work to package the victim of this motorcycle accident for transport after he hit the white car to the right. Firefighter Bill Fattig looks at bike.


Witnesses stated that this car turned left into the path of the motorcycle, which was traveling westbound on Palmer. Upon impact the driver of the motorcycle severed his left middle finger at the first joint. He was wearing a helmet, full pants, leather boots, jacket and gloves which most likely saved his life.
There is a bumper sticker that states: "Always look twice, motorcycles are everywhere."

Toyota truck after loosing control at HWY 146 and 518.
One of 3 10-50 majors we made that shift.


This car hit the back of a Jeep Cherokee which in turn was knocked into a Ford Explorer. Extensive damage incured on all vehicles. This is one of 2 major wrecks we made that night.

This car was a total loss after the driver lost control, got airborn and rolled it several times before coming to a rest upside down. He took off the tops of 2 trees about 12 feet high. I used a haligan tool to break out passenger window where he crawled out unharmed. He stated that a black pickup truck had caused him to wreck.
Second major we made that night, this one came in at 5:15 a.m.
