One person has died in an accident we first told you about Friday night.

Department of Public Safety Troopers have confirmed 19-year-old Jacob Eli Weise of College Station was killed after the 2005 Dodge Pickup Truck he was driving was struck by an 18-wheeler.

The accident happened around 8:30 Friday night on Highway 21 West in Brazos County near the Burleson County line.
