Eagle Staff Report
Two drivers and a pedestrian were hospitalized Friday after a three-vehicle accident in College Station on Friday.
The accident occurred at about 8:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Texas Avenue at its intersection with Brentwood Drive, Officer Rhonda Seaton said.
College Station resident Jaren Young, 20, had stopped his pickup in the outside lane for a red light when the driver of a Hummer ran into a sedan behind his truck. The impact pushed the car into Young's pickup, and the front right end of the truck struck a pedestrian who was crossing Texas Avenue in the cross walk.
The driver of the car, Branson McGraw, 23, of Houston; the driver of the Hummer, George Marck, 23, of College Station; and the pedestrian, Lauren Wills, 19, of San Antonio, were taken by ambulance to the College Station Medical Center, Seaton said. McGraw had facial lacerations and a possible broken nose; Wills had a possible broken leg; and Marck had a cut on his finger, Seaton said.
Young was uninjured but "shaken up," she said.
Witnesses told police Marck was speeding, she said, and he was issued a citation for failure to control speed. The speed limit in that area is 45 mph.
