Navasota wreck

Three people received non life-threatening injuries Friday afternoon after a pickup traveling on northbound Texas 6 near Navasota rolled down an embankment. 

Traffic on Texas 6 near Navasota was delayed Friday afternoon after a pickup rolled down an embankment, injuring three people.

A second accident on Texas 6 Business in Navasota happened at about the same time.

According to Navasota police Chief Shawn Myatt, first responders were dispatched to a one-vehicle crash on northbound Texas 6 on the northern edge of Navasota's city limits. Authorities said it appears a pickup fishtailed as the driver attempted a lane change along the wet road, causing the truck to roll off the road into a steep embankment. The truck landed about 100 yards from the Navasota River.

The truck's male driver, a woman and a 3-year-old, all from Brenham, were trapped in the pickup until firefighters could remove the front windshield. The three were taken to local hospitals with non life-threatening injuries.

Information on the accident south of Navasota on Texas 6 Business was not immediately available.

Drivers in the area may see traffic delays, though Myatt said at 5 p.m. Texas 6 would soon fully reopen.
