Happy Memorial Day

My hunch is alcohol will be found to have contributed to this tragedy as well.

My Condolences to both families.

North Side collision leaves two dead

A driver running red lights collided with another car at a North Side intersection early Sunday. The crash killed both drivers, according to a police report.

The driver of the car that ran the lights had not been identified Sunday. Rhonda Purcell, 42, the other driver, died at the scene.

About 2 a.m., a car traveling south on U.S. 281 ran two red lights — one at Stone Oak Parkway and another at Evans Road, where the crash occurred. The report listed driver inattention, disregarding a signal and failing to control speed as factors in the accident.
