U-Turn Gone Wrong Causes Fatal Burleson County Wreck

A College Station woman was killed in a Wednesday afternoon accident on Highway 21 in Burleson County.

It happened around 1:30 p.m. east of FM 1362 South in the community of Cooks Point.

DPS officials say an 18-wheeler was eastbound on Highway 21, when the driver of a Ford Mustang attempted a u-turn.

The semi struck the Mustang on the driver's side. The tractor trailer then slid across the roadway and struck a Chevy Tahoe.

The driver of the Mustang, Debra Garrett of College Station, was pronounced dead on the scene.

Her passenger, Melinda Carroll, was taken to St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan. She was listed in stable condition late Wednesday.

The woman driving the Tahoe, Linda Bobo of San Antonio, was air-lifted to Scott and White in Temple, where she was listed in critical condition Wednesday evening.

The driver and passenger in the 18-wheeler went to St. Joseph in a private vehicle with non-life threatening injuries.
