Stolen Truck Crashes Near Homes

12-13-05 - A mental patient recently released from a state hospital caused quite a scare at a Sherman mobile home park Tuesday morning. He drove a paving truck through the back yard of one home and then into a pickup parked out in front of another.

The truck was not his. Police say he stole it this morning at the Crossroads Motel.

No one was hurt, but the man was taken into custody by Sherman PD.

We do know he was recently released from a state hospital and does have an emergency detention order. MHMR got him the motel room for the night.

The truck belonged to Cooper Paving. The truck’s owner was not present. Also no insurance was found inside the car, so it was towed away.
