A teenager was killed in an accident that happened in College Station.

Details about the Fatal Accident

KBTX News is reporting that a teenager from Somerville was killed in an accident that happened on Monday morning that took place on Highway 6.

According to College Station Police, 19-year-old Callie Jean Hardin, was transported to the college Station Medical Center after the accident, and was then transferred via helicopter to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. The woman was pronounced dead at about 2 p.m. on Monday afternoon.

Police say that, just after 8 a.m., Hardin was heading north along Highway 6 near Deacon Drive, when she attempted to make a lane change. Another vehicle was in the lane, and police believe that Hardin overcorrected, which caused her SUV to fishtail and then rollover multiple times, according to witnesses of the accident.

At this time, investigators do not believe that Hardin was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the accident.
