An East Texas man faces "Intoxication manslaughter" charges in an early morning 4-wheeler accident.

Just after midnight, at the intersection of Lincoln Spring Road and Rosie Wady Road in Gladewater, troopers say 41-year-old Paul Adams drove a 4-wheeler into a telephone poll.

The passenger, 55-year-old William Harruff, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Adams suffered a ruptured spleen and broken rib. Troopers say Adams had been drinking.
