San Patricio County Sheriff Oscar Rivera’s office assisted at the scene of a freak accident that happened along a stretch of FM 1069 near Ingleside Tuesday morning, January 10 when the weather outside was very foggy. The driver of this pickup is lucky to have survived after crashing into a perimeter fence, not far from Flint Hills Resources, a metal pole piercing the windshield and impaling the motorist. Miraculously, though Sheriff Rivera revealed the pole was driven straight through the man’s chest cavity, he lived. The cause of the crash remains unknown. The Texas Department of Public Safety is in charge of the investigation. They did not respond to a request from The Index to provide additional details.
