Two rollover crashes in El Paso send a number of people to the hospital.
One crash happened on Transmountain Road near South Desert Boulevard in far West El Paso just after 7:00. Emergency dispatchers tell us two cars collided in the intersection. The impact caused the SUV to roll over several times. It ended up on its roof on the side of the road. The other vehicle's front end was completely smashed in. Emergency crews rushed four people to the hospital. Two are listed in critical condition.
Also, just on the other side of Transmountain near US 54 in Northeast El Paso, a semi lost control and took out a truck in its path. Officers on the scene say the semi driver couldn't handle a turn and ended up flipping the truck on its side. The passengers in the pickup truck was able to walk away. No other injuries were reported.
