Posted: Updated:

GARDEN CITY/GLASSCOCK COUNTY (KYTX) - A head-on collision Tuesday night left a West Texas oil field worker dead and injured a tanker driver from Gregg County.

According to the San Angelo Times, 30-year-old Brad Lee Nivens, of Borger, was driving north on a ranch road near Garden City when his 2009 GMC 1500 pickup drifted across the centerline and crashed into a tractor-trailer rig pulling a tank trailer. The rig is owned by Martin Transport of Kilgore, and was driven by Keith Adrian Reese, 45, of Longview.

Both vehicles burst into flames and were destroyed by fire, according to the newspaper. Nivens was pronounced dead at the scene. Reese was pulled from the burning wreckage by a passer-by, and he was treated and released Tuesday from Midland Memorial Hospital.
