Deadly North Milam corner claims new victim on Sunday

An intersection five miles north of Cameron which seems to be the site of almost weekly vehicle crashes claimed its second victim in three months on Sunday.

Tynsley Calloway-Mosley, 25, of Lancaster died at Central Texas Hospital, Cameron, following the 5:18 p.m. collision, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Her car was in collision with a pickup operated by James Holton, 41, of Bruceville-Eddy, according to investigators who said the car pulled into the path of the southbound pickup.

Holton sustained minor injuries. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage, according to the DPS.

On Dec. 20, 2011, 62-year-old Habibeh Fazullah of College Station was killed at the intersection when her car collided with an 18-wheeler.

Bobby Colwell, spokesman for the Bryan office of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) said the agency is studying the intersection at the request of County Judge Dave Barkemeyer.

OTHER CRASHES—A 58- year-old Cameron man was treated at Richards Memorial Hospital after his vehicle ran through the FM 2095-FM 3242 intersection in Hanover at 5:25 a.m. Friday.

The DPS listed damages as “extensive.”

No injuries, and moderate damages, were reported in a 10:35 p.m. Feb. 26 collision with a hog on US 77, south of Rockdale, according to the DPS.

Driver was listed as Jason Courtney, 32, of Lane, Oklahoma.
