Twenty-eight year old Brandon Finnel of Bon Wier is undergoing treatment at the Baptist Hospital in Beaumont for the injuries he received in a single vehicle auto accident that occurred on Monday morning in Buna.

Sergeant Stephanie Davis of the Texas Department of Public Safety said the crash occurred shortly before 7:00, when a 2003 Honda driven by Finnel, which was southbound on US Highway 96, for some unknown reason, veered off the road, hit a power pole and burst into flames.

The crash occurred near County Road 833. Highway 96 was blocked for some time as emergency workers cleared the wreckage and State Troopers investigated the accident.
