Woman Rolls SUV After Speeding, Passing Others
EL PASO- A afternoon rollover in Montana Vista sent a woman to the hospital yesterday.
Police say the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and passing other vehicles traveling the same direction. The driver lost control of the SUV around a curve and the vehicle slid sideways into a deserted area.
The SUV hit a dirt embankment and was launched 20 feet into the air, then landed and hit another pile of dirt and was launched 50 feet into the air. When the vehicle landed a second time, it rolled over onto its top.
The female driver was transported by Life Ambulance to a local area hospital for treatment of non life threatening injuries. Speed and alcohol are a possible contributing factors. Investigation continues.
