Teenager Killed in Leon County Accident

By  | 

A Central Texas High School student is dead after an accident Sunday morning in Leon County.

DPS says Megan Danielle Atchley, 17, of Teague was one of six people on the side of the road about 12:40 a.m. trying to fix a disabled vehicle.

Authorities say that's when Travis Treadway, 20, of Marquez was southbound on Highway 79 and -- for unknown reasons -- veered onto the shoulder and hit Atchley.

The teen later died at East Texas Medical Center in Fairfield.

Treadway, who left the scene, was later tracked down. He's now charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
