World champion bull rider J.W. Harris, his wife and two children sustained non-life-threatening injuries in a head-on collision Monday night in Brown County that killed an elderly couple from the Goldthwaite area, a Department of Public Safety trooper said.
    The DPS had not released the identifies of the deceased couple or of another person who was killed in a separate accident Monday night on County Road 213 in Brown County.
    The head-on collision happened around 8:15 p.m. at the railroad overpass on U.S. Highway 84/183 between Early and Zephyr, trooper Chris Delgado said. The elderly couple were riding in a Ford F-250 that crossed into the oncoming lane at the railroad overpass where the highway “chokes down” from four lanes to two — one lane in each direction — Delgado said.
    Their pickup collided head-on with a Ford dually pickup occupied by the Harris family, Delgado said.
    Statements from witnesses indicate a “strong possibility” that another vehicle might have contributed to the accident, Delgado said. Witness’ statements indicate a “mystery” vehicle was traveling in the lane next to the elderly couple’s pickup as they approached the railroad overpass, where the highway is still four lanes. At the location where the highway narrowed, Delgado said, the other vehicle possibly forced the pickup into the oncoming lane, where it collided with the Harris pickup, the trooper said.
    The driver of that vehicle did not stop. Delgado said he planned to talk with his sergeant and Texas Ranger Jason Shea “to see what I can do to pursue that.”
    The driver of a vehicle involved in a rollover accident on County Road 213 was ejected and died at Brownwood Regional Medical Center, the DPS said. No other details were available from the DPS.
