Three Accidents Leave Three Dead

Three people are dead Friday after three separate accidents on Brazos Valley roads.

The first happened around 3 am. Troopers think wet roads contributed to the death of the 23-year-old Michael Whiting. He was just north of Shiro on Highway 30 when his car went off the road and caught fire.

Also in Grimes County, just around dusk, a 30 year old man died when the SUV he was riding in went off a bridge on County Road 162.

In Walker County, a 19 year old died, this time in a two car accident. It happened just inside the Walker County limits on Highway 30. Troopers say, the driver who caused the accident admitted to falling alseep at the wheel.
