A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am. A few strong to severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out through mid-morning. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph and large hail are the main concern.
It was a close call for a mother and her little girl on Highway 6.
Sunday afternoon, their Ford Taurus flew into the air after striking an emergency crossover.
College Station officers at the scene say they are not sure why the vehicle left the road near Central Park.
Witnesses stopped and helped free the young girl from the car, as she was trapped by her seatbelt.
Both accident victims were taken to the College Station Medical Center.
