One occupant sustained fatal injuries and was later pronounced dead. Two others were reportedly in serious condition, and other injuries were also reported. No further information has been provided at this time.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Texas Fatal Rollover Crashes
The chance of fatalities is substantially higher in a rollover than it is in a conventional auto accident since it often happens when a car leaves the road and people are commonly thrown in the process. In 2019, rollover accidents claimed the lives of 6,358 car passengers in total. Nearly 74% of these rollovers had an impact prior to the accident itself. The remaining 26% simply rolled over without external force without any prior impact.
