New Waverly firefighter and Public Information Officer Jimmy Williams reports that 6 people were transported in two separate weekend crashes.
Huntsville and New Waverly Firefighters responded Saturday evening to the first of two serious accidents this weekend. A van rolled over on Interstate 45 in Huntsville at the 112-mile marker, landing on its side and trapping one occupant. New Waverly Firefighters responded to assist the Huntsville Fire Department, working together with hydraulic cutters to open the roof of the van and free the trapped victim.
Sunday morning, New Waverly and Huntsville firefighters were called to another serious accident on FM 1374 near the New Birth Assembly of God Church west of New Waverly. The first crews on scene found that a Dodge pickup and a Jeep Wrangler had collided in front of the church, leaving the Jeep on its side with one person reported trapped. Walker County EMS and New Waverly firefighters were able to quickly free the victim from the Jeep and Walker County EMS transported two victims to Conroe Regional Medical Center and two to Huntsville Memorial Hospital.
All of the victims transported from these accident scenes were in stable condition and are expected to recover from their injuries.
