A Ford pickup, operated by Raymond Corbett, 29, of McCleod, Texas, struck a Chrysler car, operated by a Lewisville, AR man, as they were both traveling north in the 3500 block of North Robison Road.  The impact caused the car to leave the road and strike a utility pole before rolling over and hitting a house.

Corbett was charged with Leaving the Scene of Crash Causing Injury and Driving While License Invalid.  Corbett also had a probation violation warrant for a Driving While Intoxicated charge.  Justice of the Peace Nancy Talley set Corbett’s bond at $25,000 for Leaving the Scene of the Crash.  He does not have a bond for the Probation Violation.
