It is a good idea to have things in order in your life. You never know what may happen outside of your control. This was in my local online news site.
"Tree Falls on Moving Car on US 90"
DEVERS, August 23, 2003 - It was a pine tree falling across US 90 east of Devers at around 8:45 PM on Saturday onto the top of a westbound gold 2 door Saturn that ultimately caused an accident involving 4 vehicles.
According to DPS Trooper, the westbound Gold Saturn was driven by a Mr. Mouton age 48 of Devers. Mr. Mouton saw the tree falling, took evasive action to the left but was unable to prevent the tree falling on top of his moving car. Mr. Mouton and his wife were shaken up but uninjured in the accident.
An eastbound black Mustang Convertible driven by a Ms. Henderson age 24 of Dayton ran through the fallen treetop, as did a Chevy Suburban. Both of these vehicles suffered scrapes and scratches but neither was disabled.
According to Ms. Henderson a Black Chevy Pickup traveling behind her came through the treetop and lost control. It crossed the westbound lane, ran off the road and crashed into a tree in the ditch on the north side of the road. The driver was quickly rescued from his vehicle and transported by Liberty County EMS to a hospital in Beaumont in serious condition. At press time little information is available on the injured man.
Both the Devers and Raywood Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the scene of this major accident assisting in the rescue of the injured man in the pickup and handling the clean up of the tree and branches removing them from the roadway.
