It was the wrong way for two Texas A&M freshman and another 21-year old man to lose their lives, all because of a wrong turn onto Highway 290.
Three people are dead after the 21-year old driver of a white Ford Mustang drove west bound in the eastbound lanes, crashing head on into an SUV. The SUV burst into flames, killing the 18-year old driver and back seat passenger.
The guy riding shot-gun was taken to the hospital in critical condition. All three students in the SUV were freshmen Corps of Cadets from Texas A&M. As far as why the driver of the Mustang was going the wrong-way on 290?
The Harris County Sheriff’s office says alcohol is believed to be a factor in the accident, because they found alcoholic beverages in the car. Like we said before, it’s all just plain wrong!
