A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am. A few strong to severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out through mid-morning. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph and large hail are the main concern.
A group pulling a travel trailer found itself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The place was the side of the road on Interstate 45 just north of Madisonville. The time was around 4 p.m. Monday. That's when authorities say a truck crashed into the trailer.
The impact split the travel home apart scattering belongings and debris over a large portion of the interstate and median. Miraculously, only one person required hospitalization.
Traffic was backed up briefly while the wreck was cleaned up.
