Two Bertram residents were found dead after an accident that occurred sometime in the night near CR 341, Texas DPS Troopers said.
Texas DPS Trooper Shannon Simpson confirmed that Jerry Wayne Ross, 51 and Elizabeth Nigrelli, 35, were found at 6 a.m. Saturday morning in a 2008 Chevy Silvarado laying overturned in the Hamilton Creek bed off CR 341.
They were discovered by a passerby.
"They hit the guard rail of the bridge on the near side and slid all the way down and came to rest in the water,” Simpson said.
Simpson said the couple had been heading east on the roadway when the accident occurred, but officials could not say when the accident took place.
