Boat Skids Down Highway After Accident

A fishing boat took a skid down the highway in a wreck near Round Top Sunday evening, March 10.

According to an accident report from DPS Trooper Paul Kohleffel, the accident happened around 7:49 p.m. about three-quarters of a mile south of Bauer Rummel Road. Raymond Scott Eckert, 58 of Brenham, was pulling a boat and trailer with a white 2011 Toyota Sequoia SUV north on SH 237. A silver 1995 Chevy Lumina fourdoor sedan driven by 61-yearold Terry Roy Roemer of Burton was heading south.

Kohleffel reported that the Lumina was on the wrong side of the road in a no-passing zone, although the driver was not attempting to pass anyone.
