Temple Police Investigating Fatal Overnight Crash
A man was killed and two other people were injured when an SUV left Highway 190 and rolled in Temple early Monday morning.
According to a Temple PD press release, officers responded to the crash site near the intersection of S.E.

The driver, 19-year-old Derrick Davis of Houston, was ejected from the vehicle. Police say he was not wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Two passengers - a 19-year-old woman and 21-year-old man from Houston - were transported to Scott and White Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
