HOUSTON – A man was taken to the hospital early Friday after his SUV got stuck between a freeway and a palm tree.

The vehicle came to a rest against a concrete freeway support structure.

The impact destroyed the SUV, and firefighters had to extricate the SUV.

He was taken to the hospital. His condition is unknown.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
