Vehicle hits gas pump at Dayton Brookshire Brothers

A 30-year-old Houston man was taken by Life Flight air ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital early this morning after his vehicle struck a gas pump and destroyed a small building at the Brookshire Brothers fueling station in Dayton. According to information from Dayton Police Captain John Coleman, Kenneth Trevon Cleaver was westbound on Highway 90 when his vehicle crossed the center line, continued across the roadway and into the Brookshire Brothers parking lot. Then the vehicle struck the operators’ building and a gas pump, knocking it about 75 feet away. Captain Coleman said the gas pump caught on fire but did not threaten any of its surroundings. He said the back of the vehicle lifted off of the ground and, as it turned in the air, landed on a safety post used to protect the building. The vehicle came to rest partially on its left side making it hard to get the driver out. Kenneth Cleaver was said to be breathing but unconscious and unresponsive. He was extracted from the car by Dayton volunteer firefighters and then transported by Liberty County EMS to Crosby where they met a Life Flight helicopter. From there, Kenneth Cleaver was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where he reportedly underwent surgery and, at last report, is said to be in serious but stable condition. Once again, that one-vehicle wreck occurred around 12:45 a.m. today. Dayton Police Captain John Coleman said the accident appears to be alcohol related with speed also a factor. Brookshire Brothers personnel report the fueling station will be closed for several days while repairs are made.
