Two people remain hospitalized days after Clenard Parker allegedly drove an 18-wheeler into Brenham Driver's License Office, according to DPS.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Two people remain hospitalized in critical condition after a man drove an 18-wheeler truck into a Department of Public Safety Driver's License Office in Brenham on Friday.

Bobby Huff died in that crash, and his wife said the 78-year-old drove 34 miles to Brenham from Giddings to renew his license.

According to the DPS, six people were rushed to area hospitals.

The big rig driver, identified as 42-year-old Clenard Parker, remains in jail on a $2 million bond.

Troopers told ABC13 that Parker showed up at that same office last Thursday and was told he was not eligible to renew his license.

According to DPS, the Brenham Driver's License Office will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time. Alternative offices are Bryan, Hempstead, and Caldwell.
