REFUGIO COUNTY – The arctic cold front bringing heavy rain and cold air into Refugio County also left dangerous puddles on U.S. Highway 77, causing a one vehicle accident on Friday, Nov. 22.

An AEP Dodge pickup in the northbound lanes on U.S. Highway 77 hydroplaned and went off the road into the median, striking a hedge of oleanders that helped it to flip over, about 9:55 a.m.

The driver was uninjured, according to Department of Public Safety Sgt. Billy Mora.

Also at the scene were the Refugio County Sheriff’s Office and the Refugio Volunteer Fire Department.
