Tuesday, April 14, 2015 – Man Ran Over by Own Truck
When I visit Montgomery County and people ask how my visit was, I usually say: “It was good. Nobody died. Nobody went to the Emergency Room and the police did not show up.” Here is why I say things like that.
Sorry the man died, but you gotta love East Montgomery County.

A 56-year old Splendora man died Saturday in Madison County when authorities said he fell out of his moving truck, which then ran him over.
Paul Arnold, an old field worker from Montgomery County, was pronounced dead on the scene at 1:35 a.m. by Madison County Justice of the Peace Jon Stevens.
State troopers said Arnold was traveling south in a 1998 Chevrolet truck along the I-45 feeder road about five miles south of Madisonville when his door opened.
It was unclear how fast the truck was traveling at the time of the incident or how the door was opened. The incident remained under investigation late Saturday.
Arnold was taken to Madisonville Funeral Home.
