Plagens pickup burst into flames, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

It's not clear if he was wearing a seatbelt.

Plagens was a freshman at Blinn College.

Another accident, this one in Bryan, caused traffic problems on Highway 47. It happened at one of the city's most dangerous intersections, where 47 intersects Villa Maria.
