Volume 29, No. 145 Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Wreck: Highway 90 at the Highway 146 Bypass in Liberty was shut down for a couple hours yesterday following a wreck involving 2-18-wheeler transport trucks. According to Liberty Police, an eastbound truck from Liberty Recycling-driven by Vidale Robertson of Humble went through the red light on Hwy 90 at the 146 bypass. The second truck driven by Houston resident Terrance Nelson was turning from the by-pass onto U.S. 90. Mr. Nelson had the right of way.  The eastbound truck, tried to avoid the accident and went to the shoulder where his truck flipped over. Driver of the Liberty Recycling truck-Vidale Robertson, told police, brakes on his vehicle failed. The big   metal pole supporting the traffic control lights was bent double wrapping around the overturned truck.  The traffic control signal lights with wires attached became twisted around the other tractor trailer rig. TxDot’s Sarah Dupree said a permanent light should be in place in a couple of weeks but temporary traffic control lights will be in place until then.


Fires: Hardin Volunteer Fire Department fought four separate fires on the same property in the early hours of Monday morning. Hardin Vol. Fire Chief Craig Powell said the first call was around 1:17 a.m. Monday of a frame structure engulfed in flames on SH 146 near the Hardin Elementary School. Fire fighters arrived to find 3 abandoned mobile homes all on fire – they were well behind the frame house.  All four structures were vacant with no utilities. All four were a total loss. The buildings were separated by some distance. That led investigators to suspect the fires were intentionally set. The investigation is in the hands of Sgt. Investigator Billy Knox of the Liberty County Sheriffs Department.


LibertyFire: A Sunday afternoon fire at Forest Grand Apartments on Lakeland Drive in Liberty caused heavy damage to two apartments. Asst. Fire Chief Brian Hurst said a Janice Broussard put charcoal, that she thought was out, into a plastic bag. She left that at the door of her second floor apartment. That fire rekindled and flames spread downward, causing even more damage downstairs to an apartment occupied by Michael Coyle.


Obituaries: Almeda Rose “Rosie” Ericson Renfro, 73 of Trinity, formerly of Dayton. Service 10 a.m. today at Sterling Funeral Home in Dayton.
