A man was driving his Toyota Corolla at about 90 miles per hour on the Loop 410 access road and passed a red light, police said.

The Corolla then hit a truck that was turning from Nacogdoches onto the access road.

The impact caused the truck to roll over several times and strike a light pole near a gas station. The driver of that vehicle had a gash and bump on his head and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

He said he would have a coworker transport him to the hospital, police said.

The driver of the Corolla was pinned inside his vehicle after it crashed into a wall. He was taken to University Hospital in serious condition.
