Two Burnet school students injured in TX 29 crash


Two Burnet schools students were injured in a two-vehicle crash on TX 29 at the intersection with CR 303 Thursday morning.

A 16-year-old Burnet High School junior suffered serious injuries and his 11-year-old sister also was hurt when their car was struck by another vehicle as they were on their way to school Thursday morning.

Cesar “Axl” Gonzalez was driving a 2009 Ford Focus that was hit by 1999 Ford pickup as he attempted to turn left on TX 29 from CR 303.

Burnet Consolidated Independent School District Superintendent Keith McBurnet said Gonzalez suffered serious injuries and was heavily sedated Thursday, but showed substantial improvement Friday.

The teenager’s injuries are not considered life-threatening, Barrera said Trooper Simpson told her Friday.

Gonzalez’ sister, America Ramirez, suffered an arm injury and was taken by a Burnet Fire Department EMS unit to Dell Children’s Medical Center in Austin after the accident but was home Friday, Barrera said.
