ANNA, Tex. -- A weekend accident in Anna sent three people to the hospital. It happened Saturday night at the intersection of Highway 121 and FM 2862.

Police say John M. Roche, 32, was traveling eastbound on FM 2862 when he failed to stop at a stop sign. He was then hit by an SUV traveling southbound on 121.

We're told two of Roche's passengers were taken by medical helicopter to Parkland Hospital in Dallas. The passenger of the SUV was also transported.

Officials say Roche may have been under the influence. Blood tests have been requested by the Anna Police Department.

If the passenger still listed in critical condition dies, Roche could face charges of vehicular manslaughter.
