A man is recovering in the hospital after crashing his truck into brays bayou in southwest houston overnight. Viewers called police and then called our newsroom at midnight, when a pickup ran off the West Loop feeder road and into the water. HFD's dive team rescued the driver from the bayou and took him to Ben Taub Hospital. The truck ran through several street signs before crashing into the bayou.

Investigators still aren't sure why he lost control.
