The sister of a Bon Wier man who was injured in a tragic accident late Friday afternoon says that he is still undergoing treatment.

According to Tierra Samuel, her brother, 56-year-old Andy Hubbard remains in Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. Samuel said that he has already undergone surgery for broken bones and other internal injuries, and he still faces more surgery.

Meanwhile, Samuel said that their family’s hearts and prayers go out to the Mitchell family, also of Bon Wier.

17-year-old Conner Mitchell died Saturday at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont despite efforts to save his life.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said that Mitchell was driving a 2004 Chevrolet pickup truck southbound on Farm to Market Road 1416 between Bon Wier and Belgrade. Troopers said for an unknown reason, Mitchell crossed the center line and collided head-on with Hubbard’s northbound 2016 Ford pickup truck.
