•Korbyn Tune, 17, of Houston, was cited on charges of DWI (drugs) and failed to drive on the right half of the roadway following a 11:45 p.m. Dec. 2 accident. Police said they made the stop after trash was struck on First Street, and they investigated and stopped the vehicle on a South Sam Houston Blvd. parking lot. Tune was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital for treatment.

•A completed report was released Monday regarding an accident that occurred Dec. 2 west of Houston City Hall.

Police said they were called at about 12:29 a.m. after a truck operated southbound on First Street by Brody D. McNew, 16, of Bucyrus, traveled off the left side off the roadway, struck a fire hydrant. Offices said the hydrant was broken at the base and struck the bed of a parked vehicle at 700 S. First.

The truck then collided with the rear of the vehicle and struck a trash can. The McNew vehicle then continued south through the Glo Salon parking lot, collided with a guy wire and caused a utility pole to break in half.

Once the pole broke, the electric lines fell, striking a parked vehicle at Whiddon’s Air and Electrical. McNew, who told officers he was trying to find his cell phone at the time, was released to a family member to be transported to a medical facility to be evaluated. He is charged with careless and imprudent driving.
