Driver Seriously Injured in SPID Rollover

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A 20-year old man is fighting for his life after crashing his truck on SPID overnight.

It was just about 1 a.m. Sunday when witnesses said the driver of a white truck was weaving back and forth on the freeway. The driver then appeared to try and exit SPID near Weber when he then veered back onto the highway and lost control.

The truck hit the center median and flipped, and skid on its passenger side about 600 feet. The driver was found unconscious and had to be cut out of his truck by firefighters. He suffered serious, possibly fatal, head trauma.

"He wasn't wearing a seat belt, so that added to his injuries," said Lt. Phillip Bintliff of the Corpus Christi Police Department.

The driver is currently in the intensive care unit.

Police said he may have been drunk when he crashed, and could face charges of driving while intoxicated. For now, he is charged with failure to control his speed, and having no insurance.
