Evidence at the scene showed that the car was driven off the pavement, across a gravel shoulder through some grass and onto an elevated, concrete under-the-highway culvert wall structure.  When the vehicle stopped, almost half of it was hanging off the edge and the vehicle was teetering on the wall.  The driver had to exit the vehicle through the passenger side to avoid falling 12 feet from the top of the wall.  There was no ground under the driver’s side of the car.  This was not a crash although, there may have been some damage done to the under side of the vehicle.

Morning Star Fire & Rescue Troops arrived quickly and assisted as necessary.

LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew to the scene.  They met with the driver, but did not transport him to the hospital.

Bruce Emmett Carver, 34, was arrested at the scene, transported to the Garland County Detention Center and charged with DWI.  Bond was set at $1,000.
