A man had to be taken by Life Flight after an accident in northwest Houston overnight.

Around midnight, a flatbed wrecker driver was responding to a crash scene at the intersection of of Fallbrook at the Sam Houston Parkway when a car slammed into its side. The impact was so hard it lifted the wrecker in the air, causing it to crash into a traffic light pole.

Crews had to use rescue jaws to pry out the two men inside the car. One man was transported by Life Flight in serious condition. The other is listed as stable.

Investigators are trying to determine who was at fault. Both drivers say they had the green light.
