Three storm chasers were killed in a crash near Spur, Texas Tuesday afternoon. That’s about 70 miles east of Lubbock.
The Weather Channel has identified two of those storm chasers as Kelley Williamson and Randall Yarnall.
Amarillo CBS affiliate KCBD reports from the Texas Department of Public Safety that a black Suburban carrying the three chasers was traveling north at about 3:30 p.m. when it ran through a stop sign and collided with a westbound Jeep.
A lieutenant with the department of public safety says the three were chasing a tornado at the time of the crash, although CBS DFW (http://cbsloc.al/2ow2IOk) reports that police don’t believe severe weather was a direct cause. Source: kwch
