A 21-year-old man was killed Friday afternoon in a fatal collision along Wellborn Road in Bryan.
According to Bryan police, at about 4:15 p.m., officers were called to the 4200 block of Wellborn Road, near the intersection of Clay Street. Three vehicles had been involved in a collision, and the driver of a Jeep, whom authorities say was not wearing a seat belt, had been ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators determined that a Toyota Camry had been traveling southbound on Wellborn and slowed down to make a left turn into the Westgate Shopping Center. A van driving behind the Camry had been speeding and slammed into the rear of the car, police said. This sent the Camry into the path of northbound traffic, which is when it collided with the northbound Jeep, causing the Jeep to roll.
Neither the driver of the Camry nor the driver of the van were injured. The driver of the van was cited for speeding and for not having a valid driver’s license.
Authorities have not released the name of the victim.
