HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — One man was burned alive and another was rescued after a fiery crash in northeast Harris County. Deputies said just after midnight the two men were driving east on Beaumont Highway when they lost control of the car. According to Sgt. Wolverton, the vehicle veered off of the road, slamming into a metal light pole causing the car to flip over into a ditch and burst into flames.

Two good Samaritans saw the accident and were able to pull one of the males out to safety. The other male burned and died in the car.

The survivor was transported to the hospital where deputies found that he was intoxicated. The car came back as registered to the survivor but deputies have yet to determine if he was the driver of the vehicle at this time.
