Going 90 MPH the wrong way down a highway? Oh yeah.
All this happened about 2:30 this morning, deputies say.
Barreling down the Eastex Freeway, Branch plowed head-on into a Mercedes that never had a chance. The passenger in the Mercedes was pronounced dead at the scene; the driver is in the hospital.
Branch survived, too. "Police said Branch was taken to the hospital in stable condition," KPRC reports.
