NEDERLAND — Nederland Police are investigating an incident in which a Port Arthur man suffered burns over a majority of his body last week.

Zachary Ryan Bailey, 29, of Port Arthur was working on a car in the 3000 block of Avenue G in Nederland when, at about 2:46 p.m. Dec. 28 when the incident occurred. A can of gasoline was nearby and possibly tipped over or was thrown on him, Nederland Police Chief Darrell Bush said.

The victim was transported to a Galveston Hospital for treatment.

“The incident is currently under investigation. We are still speaking with witnesses,” Bush said. “Once he (Bailey) recovers enough to give a statement and facts about the incident we will travel to Galveston to speak to him.”
