Driver Leaves Crashed Truck in Reservoir

CORPUS CHRISTI - Officials at the Stevens Water Plant have spent much of the morning trying to figure out how to remove a truck that crashed into one of their tanks.

Police say around 4:30 this morning the driver of a Ford F-150 pickup was making a turn on the 13000 block of Hearn Road when he lost control of his truck.

The truck crashed through the fence around the water plant and went up the embankment. The truck kept going until it crashed into one of the reservoirs.

The guy driving the truck wasn't hurt, in fact he called some family members and asked them to pick him up.

Police still have not been able to question the driver. For now he's facing a charge of leaving the scene of an accident.

A police dive team was heading out to the water plant sometime today to see if the truck caused any damage and to find a way to remove it.

Officials with the water plant stress that there is no danger to the city's water supply.
