Personnel with the Brownwood Fire Department and Guardian EMS reach into the cab of a pickup to assist the driver after the vehicle left the Williams Ranch Road Thursday afternoon and hit a tree. The accident happened a few hundred yards from the intersection with C.C. Woodson after the driver failed to negotiate a right-hand curve, investigators and witnesses said. The driver, whose identity was not released at the scene, was talking to rescuers and was taken to Brownwood Regional Medical Center. Photo by Steve Nash
