Waxahachie director of finance Carl Wessels has been hospitalized after being injured in an automobile accident near Ruston, La., on Sunday, June 3.
Driving back from a fishing camp, the 2006 GMC Suburban in which Wessels was riding lost control on a wet road and rolled, reports indicate.
Wessels was transported to a local hospital, where it was discovered he suffered two compression fractures in his back, specifically the T-2 and T-3 vertebrates. He was later moved to a Shreveport, La., hospital, where he may undergo surgery to repair the damage.
Wessels’ family reported that aside from his back injury, he is in good condition.
