Earlier this week we were on the scene of a major semi accident in Rice that seriously injured a Houston man. A quick look at the photos captured by staff had us asking how he survived.

The cab and engine were nearly split into from the impact. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
