A vehicle fled from an accident Friday night after causing injuries when the driver reportedly hit another vehicle at an intersection where traffic lights were out during the heavy rains.

A 32-year-old woman said she was driving a Toyota Highlander westbound on West Baker Road when she entered its intersection with Emmet Hutto Boulevard.

The traffic lights were out, she said and she was driving slowly with her flashers on.

She said a newer model black Jeep Wrangler that was driving northbound on Emmet Hutto struck her, making no attempt to stop or slow down. The Highlander spun and came to a stop.

The driver of the Highlander said she got out of her vehicle and yelled at the other driver, but he showed no concern and drove off westbound on Baker Road.

There were seven people in the Highlander, ages 1-32. They were taken to Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries and released.

The woman described the other driver as a black man, about 26-27 years old, wearing a black T-shirt. The Wrangler had considerable front-end damage.

Parking dispute

A man reported being hit and knocked to the ground by a truck, possibly a white F250, following a parking dispute.

The victim said he found another man letting the air out of his tires in the parking lot of Bayland Marina about 11:15 a.m. Thursday. The man was apparently upset that the victim’s truck and boat trailer took up several parking spaces.

During the argument that followed, the victim tried to take a photo of the other man and his vehicle.

At that time, the man got into his truck and backed into the victim, knocking him to the ground.He was checked by EMS at the scene for injuries.


A police canine was used to get a man into custody after he holed up in the bathroom of an apartment after evading police.

The incident began about 4:45 p.m. Thursday when police were called to an apartment complex in the 2100 block of West Baker Road in reference to a man who was not welcome on the property was in the pool area.

When police arrived, the man fled and entered an apartment that belonged to a family member.

After other people left the apartment and the man, identified as 24-year-old Michael Alfred, refused to exit, a police dog was deployed, leading to Alfred’s arrest.

According to Baytown police spokesman Lieutenant Steve Dorris, Alfred was treated by EMS for minor injuries and refused further treatment, then was charged with evading arrest.
