At 01:24 central time, a Cessna 152 crashed near Navasota, killing the pilot and passenger. VMC prevailed and the airplane was on an IFR flight plan. The pilot told controllers he was having a problem with the vacuum system and was disoriented. The controller provided vectors to the pilot so he could return to College Station.
