Two Rudder High School football players were injured in a car accident Sunday night.
The accident happened at 6:55 p.m. on Grassbur Road near Elmo Weedon Road in Brazos County, according to Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Jimmy Morgan.
Gage Schwartz and Brant Roberts were in a car driven by Schwartz heading north when the car hit a pickup head-on while going around a curve, Morgan said.
Both vehicles caught fire, but all three people were able to get out and were taken to CHI St. Joseph Regional hospital with non-life threatening injuries, he said.
Schwartz and Roberts are juniors and play safety and quarterback, respectively.
Bryan school district athletic director Janice Williamson said Rangers head coach Eric Ezar has been in contact with both players’ families.
