A TORNADO WATCH has been issued for Leon, Milam, and Robertson Counties until 5:00am Monday morning. A line of strong to severe thunderstorms is on its way to the Brazos Valley and should arrive between 2 and 3 am. Heavy rain, frequent lightning, and winds above 50 mph are our main concerns. However, an isolated tornado, especially in our northern counties, cannot be ruled out.
BRYAN Bryan Police say a driver trying to pass a truck on the shoulder caused a rollover accident on Highway 6 Friday morning.
According to officers, a grey Ford 150 used the right hand shoulder to pass a flat bed truck. As that grey truck tried to get back onto the highway, it clipped the flat bed. The Ford spun out into the center median and the flat bed ended up in a creek bed, hitting a concrete wall.
Both drivers were taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Bryan with minor injuries.
The driver of the grey truck, Matthew Cordes, of Bastrop, TX, was cited for failing to pass to the right safely.
It took three tow truck drivers three hours to pull the flat bed truck out of the creek.
