Texas State Trooper Craig Swantner looks over the charred vehicle driven by Gregory Robinson, a 22 year-old young man from Elgin, who was killed in a three-vehicle crash north of Elgin early Thursday morning involving two 18-wheelers and his passenger vehicle. The crash occurred on Texas Highway 95 near County Road 87 in Bastrop County, just north of Elgin. Robinson attempted to pass one of the 18-wheelers on the shoulder of the highway when he veered into the oncoming lane striking the other 18-wheeler head-on. His vehicle burst into flames and killed him on the scene.
