24 indicted, 2 no-billed by Milam grand jury

Twent y-four persons were indicted Dec. 17 by a Milam County grand jury, which also returned two no-bills (declined to indict).

One of the non-indictments involved an April 4, 2009, pickup bicycle accident near Rockdale.

Bicyclist Ruben Hitchcock, 43, was treated for a broken back and numerous broken bones after a 10:35 p.m. collision with a pickup on US 77 near the eastern city limits of Rockdale.

Brazos County State Trooper Tommy Lyons said the driver, 68-year-old Delbert Yarbrough of Rockdale, thought he had hit something but did not know it was a person until returning to the site the next day.

Lyons was brought in by the DPS to work the case as Yarbrough is the father of a Milam County State Trooper.
