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.
MONTGOMERY, Texas (AP) - A Houston-area teenager has died after the all-terrain vehicle he was riding crashed into a brick culvert while being pursued by a law officer.
The Texas Department of Public Safety identified the youth as 17-year-old Samuel Paul Acreman of Montgomery. Investigators say Acreman was dead at the scene before dawn Saturday.
DPS spokesman Erik Burse says Acreman, who was not wearing a helmet, was driving the ATV without lights on when he almost rammed a squad car on routine patrol. Burse says the officer began chasing the ATV when the driver refused to stop.
DPS says the teen apparently lost control on a curve and crashed into the brick culvert in an area near his neighborhood.
Investigators will review the case. Prosecutors did not immediately return a message Monday.
