Drunk Driver Pleaded Guilty

A Lufkin man who caused a deadly wreck back in July has pleaded guilty to intoxication manslaughter.

Twenty-two year-old Tyrone Brown entered the plea Tuesday afternoon in a Lufkin courtroom. A judge will sentence him after a pre-sentence investigation.

Brown crashed head-on into 44-year-old Wendell Porter on highway 2497 near Hudson. Porter died in the July 5th crash. A passenger was also hurt.

Brown had been drinking before the wreck.
