A crash on Highway 105 claimed the life of a teen last week.
DPS says the accident happened around 11:57 pm December 3rd, on Highway 105 about 4 miles east of Navasota.

The vehicle left the roadway onto the grass, over-corrected back onto the highway, passing the center line, and collided with a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado heading Eastbound.
The driver of the Saturn was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver was identified at 18 year old Roberto Acosta Lopez of Houston. The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado, identified as 58 year old William Foster of Montgomery, was transported to CHI St. Joseph in Bryan in stable condition.
Authorities say both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
