An oil field worker has been flown to a Fort Worth hospital after an accident in Young County this morning.

Young County Sheriff Bryan Walls tells us it happened a little after 10 a.m. on FM 1287 just south of Graham.

He said the worker, Richard Boone, was in his truck moving a pole when the cable came off the pulley and the pole went through the cab of the truck and struck him in the face.

Boone was flown to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth.

He was listed in critical condition this afternoon.
