A Baylor University student and a recent graduate were killed and two students were seriously injured Tuesday morning in a one-vehicle crash east of Marlin in Central Texas, the Texas Department of Public Safety reported.
The four were in a pickup that went out of control and slammed into a tree on Texas 7 about three miles east of Marlin near the Falls and Limestone county line, said DPS Trooper D.L. Wilson.
Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Lonny Haschel said a young man from Bridgeport, who'd been missing since Wednesday, was found dead inside his truck at the bottom of a ravine near Lake Bridgeport Friday.
"There’s been a steady line of people standing on the bridge to see how this did happen," said Bridgeport resident Melvin Bostick. "As to how he could sit down there for three days and no one see him."
After a two-day investigation that produced few leads, Harris County investigators Wednesday identified the driver of a pickup who was killed along with four of his passengers late Sunday when their vehicle was stuck by another truck traveling the wrong way on the north Sam Houston Parkway.
