Collision leaves 1 dead, 1 injured

A Texas A&M student was killed and another injured in a head-on collision shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday six miles south of Marlin.

Gary Patterson, Texas Department of Public Safety communications supervisor, said 18-year-old Jayson Alan Clubb and 19-year-old Andrew Aldridge, both freshmen, were traveling south on State Highway 6 when their 1991 Mazda crossed into the northbound lane. The car collided with a 1997 Chevrolet driven by 26-year-old Gerardo Garza of Arlington.

Patterson said Clubb and Garza were both pronounced dead at the scene. Aldridge was taken to Falls Community Hospital in Marlin, where he was treated and released.

Clubb and Aldridge were traveling to College Station after participating in Saturday's Corps of Cadets parade in Waco.

Fraternities' wins give others help

Alpha Chi Omega held its sixth-annual All-University Tailgate before the Texas A&M University-Baylor football game on Saturday. This event supports Baylor Athletics and raises money for the Waco Family Abuse Center. Each organization set up a tailgate that was judged on creativity and food. The event ended in a tie between fraternities Lambda Chi Alpha and Sigma Nu, and each received $500 for its charities -- the North American Food Drive and the American Heart Association, respectively.
