New information regarding the investigation into a Bryan wreck that claimed the lives of three local teens.

The brother of one of the victims is now considered a witness instead of a person of interest.

Bryan Police Chief Ty Morrow says, Wayne Dicky II, the older brother of Alex Dicky, 15, was in a second car at the scene of the accident.

Morrow also told News 3 that the dash cam video may indicate the two cars were racing.

Wayne Dicky II remains in jail for driving several times while his license was suspended. He also failed to appear in court for a criminal trespassing charge.

According to recently released toxicology reports, alcohol was involved in the fatal wreck.

Police say Alex Dicky of Bryan and Normangee brothers Gus and Dillon Benavides were at a sweet 16 party before the accident, where there was alcohol.

The combination of underage drinking and driving led to the death of these three vibrant teens.

Now police want other teenagers to know one wrong decision can be deadly.

Bryan Police Chief Ty Morrow filed a public service announcement Wednesday about the dangers of drinking and driving. He filmed it at the place where the three teens lost their lives.

"If this public service announcement can reach just one kid or one teen or one adult, to have them think about what they are doing before they climb behind the wheel of a car after drinking, then this is well worth the time spent," Morrow said.

The location of the shoot served as a stark reminder of what happened in early August. Alex Dicky and brothers Dillon and Gus Benadvides were killed when the car they were in hit a tree and burst into flames. Police say speeding and alcohol were involved.

The PSA is aimed at teenagers, who often think they are invincible.

"They think they're superman or superwoman they can do anything," Morrow said. "My caution to them would be, please don't drink and drive and if you do this could be the scene of your death."

The Bryan Police Department has teamed up with the Brazos Valley Regional Advisory Council.

You can see the PSA on KBTX in the coming weeks.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is still looking into who may have provided the teenagers alcohol. The Bryan Police Department says its investigation is on-going.
