The three people in a vehicle that ended up in the Navasota River Sunday night didn’t suffer any serious injuries, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
A 17-year-old Fairfield woman was driving a 2003 Pontiac Aztek eastbound on U.S. 84 when she apparently fell asleep.
At around 8:30 p.m., about 3/10ths of a mile west of CR 194, her vehicle left the roadway to the right. She turned the wheel to the left, which caused her to lose control of the SUV, which began to roll. It continued to roll to the right, rolling as it left the road, entering the bar ditch then landing upright in the water.
The preliminary DPS report did not state how the driver or the 20-year-old woman and baby who were also in the vehicle were able to escape it.
