Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, across the Brazos Valley, Saturday afternoon and evening. Winds in excess of 40-60mph are the main concern, within the strongest activity. An isolated, brief tornado threat cannot be ruled out. Heavy rainfall between 1" and 3" has the potential to cause localized flash flooding in a few locations.
ROUND TOP, Texas -- Investigators say a go-kart wreck on private property in Central Texas has killed an 11-year-old girl from the Houston area.
The Fayette County Sheriff's Office on Monday announced a Tomball girl died following the accident near Round Top. Lt. David Beyer declined to immediately release the victim's name.
Beyer says the girl was riding on property owned by her grandparents around 5 p.m. Sunday when she wanted to make one more round. Beyer says the child's parents became concerned when she didn't return and they discovered the accident scene.
The girl was taken to St. Marks Medical Center in La Grange where she was pronounced dead.
Round Top is about 75 miles east of Austin.
