Bryan Public Information Officer Kelley McKethan said emergency crews responded to a major accident in the 6700 block of Highway 47 near Villa Maria at around 8 p.m. An SUV was headed south on the highway when it drifted left and hit the guardrail. The guardrail shot through the engine and lit the vehicle on fire.

Fatigue is considered to be a contributing factor in the accident.
