A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am. A few strong to severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out through mid-morning. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph and large hail are the main concern.
A vehicle believed to be a van slammed into the back of a sedan about 8:30 p.m. Sunday night near Brenham killing a passenger in the car and injuring two others.
The van fled the scene but was apparently found abandoned a short time later. The driver was still on the loose late Sunday. The DPS Trooper investigating the hit-and-run said there were no witnesses to the crash. Both cars were northbound on Hwy 36 just before you get into Brenham.
