Pasadena, TX — On December 23, 2018, U.S. Marine Fernando “Nandito” Dominguez IV was seriously injured after he drove into a metal pole, impaling him.
Authorities say the incident occurred around 1:45 a.m. on Highway 225 near Scarborough Lane. Reports say that Dominguez fell asleep behind the wheel of his moving vehicle and crashed into a metal pipe supporting some electrical wiring. The pipe was knocked over and penetrated the cab of Dominguez’s rental car, impaling him in the process.
Emergency personnel carefully extricated Dominguez from the car; he was reportedly conscious and laughing during the rescue. He was then taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in stable condition. After a series of surgeries, he was discharged around the New Year.
No further information is available.
