Bulletin Staff Report

A 57-year-old May man was killed in a one-vehicle accident Saturday night 19 miles north of Brownwood, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.

The accident was not discovered until Sunday morning, and Justice of the Peace Jim Cavanaugh pronounced Freddy Wayne Burnett dead at the scene of the accident on FM 2559.

Burnett was driving a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee north and failed to negotiate a curve, the DPS said. The driver overcorrected, causing the Jeep to skid off the road and into a fence, and overturn.

The DPS said the crash occurred about 11:35 p.m. and was not discovered until after daylight Sunday morning.

The road was dry and the weather was clear at the time of the crash. Trooper Chris Delgado is investigating, the DPS said.
