Two Henderson County game wardens received a call in the evening from a local landowner who said he and members of his church were conducting a bible study when an unknown vehicle sped through his front gate and crashed in the pasture behind his property. As the wardens arrived on scene, the driver of the vehicle fled on foot and couldn’t be found. However, the driver left behind his wallet and identification card in the car along with other personal items.  After searching the area with no success, the wardens decided to continue the investigation the next morning. Early the next day, the landowner called the wardens saying he had gone deer hunting and as he was leaving the deer stand the driver appeared out of nowhere, smoking a cigarette. The driver asked him “Where am I? How did I get here?” The wardens responded to the call and found the landowner and driver sitting down by a fire having coffee.  The driver told the wardens he decided to smoke some Kush cannabis after leaving his parole officer’s office. The driver spent the night outside in freezing temperatures and was so impaired he had no clue how he got to this ranch or where his car was.

Game warden notes: Man who crashed into fence found by police having coffee with homeowner

A man who spent the night in freezing weather after crashing into a fence during a family’s bible study was found by police the next morning after the homeowner befriended the man.

Texas game wardens were called to a home in Henderson County after the homeowner, who was hosting a bible study, found a car had crashed through his property’s fence. The wardens found the car, but no driver.

The next morning, wardens circled back with the homeowner and found the man sitting around a fire with the homeowner drinking coffee. It turns out the man was high on marijuana when he ran into the fence, according to the wardens.

After crashing, the man had gotten out and ran off, eventually spending the night in the wilderness and freezing temperatures. He emerged from the woods the next morning, smoking a cigarette, and reportedly asking “Where am I? How did I get here?” wardens said.

The homeowner took the man in and offered him a hot drink while waiting for the wardens to arrive. It is unclear if he was charged.
