HOUSTON—A man crashed his car into a pole after being wounded in a drive-by shooting in northwest Houston early Thursday, according to Houston police.
The man was stopped at a red light on Antoine at Golden Forest around midnight when another car drove alongside him and someone opened fire.
The man was shot in the arm and drove for about a mile or two, but collapsed as he was approaching Highway 290.
He ran over a curb, knocked down a couple of metal street poles and smashed into a Shell gas station sign at the corner of Antoine.
The victim was trapped inside the wrecked vehicle until he was freed by heavy rescue. He was then transported to Ben Taub Hospital in serious, but stable condition.
The suspect remains on the loose.
