A one-vehicle accident happened last week along one of the Rio Grande Valley curviest road ways but no one was injured.

A black Chevrolet sport utility vehicle veered off the road on north FM 803 sometime around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 29, and ended up partially submerged in an irrigation ditch.

The accident happened about 2 miles north of Texas Highway 100.

The stretch of the road is marked by a couple of areas of sharp curves not typically seen in this part South Texas.

Constables, volunteers with firefighters and Emergency Medical Services personnel with Los Fresnos and troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety quickly responded to the mishap.

The black SUV could be seen from the Farm –to-Market road as several lawmen combed the area looking for clues as to how the accident happened.
