A local Texas Department Criminal Justice employee is dead after a fatal accident early Thursday morning in east Brazos County.
The wreck happened just before 1 a.m. DPS officials say John Schuler was likely travelling too fast on a sharp turn along Elmo Weedon Road at Steep Hollow Road.
The 41-year-old apparently lost control and went into a skid. His truck flipped twice, and the driver's side of the vehicle struck a tree. DPS says Schuler was killed on impact. A pair of residents heard the crash and tried to get to Schuler, but he was dead.
