Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
LAMAR COUNTY, TX -- A Lamar County program that steers away from drinking and driving is having a fundraiser Saturday, Sept. 22nd.
Dylan's Drivers offers free rides to anyone in the county who has had too much to drink, or just needs a safe ride home.
Two vehicles run almost every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 p.m. To 3 in the morning.
A couple started the organization after their 20-year-old son Dylan Dallard died in an alcohol related crash last year.
The fundraiser will kick off at the Love Civic Center with a 5K and fun run at 8 in the morning.
There will also be a softball tournament, car show and much more.
All proceeds will go towards keeping Dylan's Drivers running.
