Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook:
Warmer-than-normal afternoons are the rule Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 80s to near 90! Rain holding off until the middle of next week.
(February 11, 2008)—Three Texas men are dead after a fiery one-car accident that happened just a hundred yards from their destination.
Grapevine police suspect speed was a factor in the crash that killed 26-year-old Aubrey Amado of Grapevine, his 27-year-old childhood friend Justin Cartwright of Euless, and 28-year-old co-worker Cory Pratt of Bedford.
Police say they died when the car in which they were riding slammed into the rear of a parked tractor-trailer rig and burst into flames.
Investigators estimate that the car was exceeding 55 miles per hour in a zone with a posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour.
They’re not sure who was at the wheel.
