A major accident on FM 2818 in Bryan late Monday night left one person dead and two injured.
The two-vehicle wreck happened around 10:15 p.m. Authorities believe a green Chrysler was attempting to turn north off of Independence when a white Chevy pickup headed north on 2818 crashed into the rear of the car.
Both vehicles came to rest around 50 yards from the impact, with the truck flipping more than once according to police.
The lone passenger in the car, a 41-year-old female, was dead when first responders arrived at the scene. Her identity has yet to be released.
"We did have the driver who had major injuries, both the Chrysler and the driver of the white Chevrolet also had major injuries and had to be removed from the vehicle," said Sgt. Steve French with BPD.
Those drivers have been identified as Bryan Sullivan, the 27-year-old driver of the car, and Robert James, the 25-year-old driver of the truck. Authorities on scene did not believe those drivers' injuries were life-threatening. They were taken to St. Joseph Regional Health Center for treatment.
FM 2818 between Independence and Highway 21 was closed while authorities worked the accident.
