Accident Victim Goes From Hospital Bed to Jail Cell

A man involved in a fatal wreck this week was arrested immediately after being released from the hospital Friday.

Jason Greer, 31, was on probation for manufacturing and delivery of a controlled substance.

A warrant was issued August 28 for a motion to revoke his probation, sheriff's officials said.

Since Greer hadn't turned himself in, Brazos County Sheriff's deputies picked him up as he was leaving the College Station Medical Center Friday morning, according to sheriff's officials.

He was released on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond shortly after being booked in the Brazos County jail.

Greer was driving a pickup truck Wednesday that slammed into a car after the car's driver ran a stop sign at Barron Road and William D. Fitch Parkway, police said. The passenger in the car, 16-year-old Tara Lewis, was killed.

The driver, 16-year-old Elizabeth Pfitzer, is in stable condition at College Station Medical Center.
