College Station man killed in three-vehicle crash
A former Texas A&M University track star who won a bronze medal representing Trinidad and Tobago in the 2012 Summer Olympics was killed Monday night in a collision involving three vehicles on FM 485 north of Cameron.
Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Bryan Washko said the crash occurred at about 6:30 p.m. Monday night on FM 485, about four miles northeast of Cameron.
Deon Christopher Lendore, 29, of College Station, was driving west in a 2015 Volkswagen Jetta sedan on FM 485 when his vehicle crossed the center stripe and sideswiped a vehicle traveling east.
His Volkswagen continued traveling west and drifted across the center stripe again, colliding with a 2018 Infiniti SUV head on.
Lendore was pronounced deceased at the scene by Milam County Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 Greg Hoelscher.
A 65-year-old Conroe woman, the driver of the Infiniti, was transported to Baylor Scott &White Medical Center inTemple with incapacitating injuries, Washko said. The driver of the vehicle initially sideswiped was not injured.
The crash investigation is still active.
This was the first fatality on Milam County roads for 2022.
