COLLEGE STATION, TX — Lanes on Wellborn Road in College Station will be closed to facilitate "crash reconstruction" activities as part of a continuing intoxication assault investigation.

Wellborn Road (FM 2154) will be closed between Deacon & Harvey Mitchell (FM 2818) on Wednesday, October 21 from 3 a.m. until mid-to-late morning.

All lanes of Wellborn Road will be closed, according to College Station Police.

The crash reconstruction activities comes after a College Station man was arrested for intoxication assault following a wreck on Sunday.

On Sunday, October 18, at about 3 a.m. a car was southbound on Wellborn Road when it crashed into the back of a southbound SUV.

The impact caused the SUV to roll over, ejecting an unrestrained passenger.

The driver of the car, 31-year-old College Station resident David Andrew Hammond, was arrested for intoxication assault.

The SUV's driver was not injured. The ejected passenger suffered an incapacitating injury, according to police.

The SUV's other passenger and the driver of the car suffered non-incapacitating injuries.

All injured persons were transported by College Station Fire to local hospitals.

College Station Police say northbound Wellborn traffic will divert east onto Deacon Drive during the closure.

Southbound Wellborn traffic will divert onto FM 2818.

The 2818 ramp for southbound Wellborn will be closed. All eastbound Cain Road traffic will divert south onto Old Wellborn. Jones Crossing traffic will go north.

College Station Police says two northbound Wellborn Road lanes will be reopened as soon as possible (the inside/left lane will remain closed for the duration of the closure). While these northbound lanes might be reopened in time for "rush hour" traffic, this cannot be guaranteed.

Motorists should be urged to plan their morning commutes accordingly.
