On September 25th at approximately 11:21 AM, officers with the College Station Police Department responded to the intersection of University Drive East and Copperfield Parkway for a report of a major accident.

Through their investigation, officers were able to determine the following sequence of events.

A 2009 Chevrolet pickup truck traveling east on University Drive East attempted to make a left turn into the northbound lanes of Copperfield Parkway at the intersection.
