The identity of a man killed in a two-car wreck Thursday morning at the intersection of William D. Fitch Parkway and Barron Road has been released by College Station police.
Daniel Dodds, a 24-year-old Bryan resident, was driving a 2006 Isuzu truck eastbound on Barron Road at about 10:30 a.m. when, according to police, he ran a red light and was hit on the passenger side by a Land Rover. The truck slammed into a utility pole and caught fire, authorities said.
Dodds was pronounced dead at the scene. Both the driver of the SUV, Michael Pittman, a 63-year-old College Station resident, and his passenger were treated at College Station Medical Center and released. Police didn't release the passenger's name or the specific injuries.
The first emergency crew to arrive said both vehicles were against the utility pole and the truck was on fire. Dodds, whose truck was carrying pesticides, worked at Venus Pest Company.
Northbound William D. Fitch Parkway was closed for several hours at the intersection with Barron Road, and Barron Road was closed from the intersection of Fieldstone Place to William D. Fitch Parkway.
