Those who attended the base ball game at Liberty Hill last Sunday report a car accident one mile east of that place early Sunday morning in which a young man, the sole occupant of the car, was burned to death after he had struck a culvert, which wrecked his automobile, setting fire to same, which burned the young man so severely that he died while being taken to a hospital at Austin.  It is stated that the car was loaded with various articles, including several cans of gasoline, and it was the explosion of this gasoline with which the young man became saturated when the car overturned that caused his death.  It is reported that the unfortunate young man was from Athens and was on his way to Bertram to visit.  It is presumed that he went to sleep while driving, which caused him to hit the side of the culvert.
