HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - A man was transported to a Lufkin hospital Friday morning after his car was found on fire in an embankment off of Mount Carmel Road.

Officer Joe Burton said it was not clear whether the black Kia Spectra caught on fire before or after he ended up in the embankment, but that the man managed to get out of the car himself.

Responders with Hudson Fire and Lufkin Fire also responded to the incident, which occurred near the Old Union Road intersection.

Burton declined to release the name of the victim until family members were notified of the incident.
