A pair of accidents in the Brazos Valley Sunday left two young women dead.

In Grimes County, Crystal Kretzmann, 20, of Navasota and a 19-year-old passenger were out delivering newspapers near the community of Keith just after 5am. Authorities say the driver of a pickup truck, John Thomas Richardson, 18, crossed the center line and struck the car.

Kretzmann died at the scene. Richardson was last reported in stable condition at College Station Medical Center. Kretzmann's passenger was treated and released.

Another fatal accident, this one in Milam County around 11:30 Sunday morning. Nicole Broussard, 19, of Cedar Park went into a side skid on US-79 near Milano, and was hit by an SUV in the on-coming lane.

Broussard was ejected and died at the scene. The two people in that SUV suffered minor injuries.
