Man Has Serious Injuries
EL PASO - One man is recovering after a truck rollover in East El Paso. Police said the man will survive the crash, but tell us he was unconscious when they arrived.
Police say 20-year-old Daniel Cox was speeding down Pendleton Road at about 1:30 Wednesday morning. The truck flipped at least once and the driver was thrown from his truck.
The truck caught fire a short time later, most likely, police say, from being upside down. It took firefighters about 45 minutes to put out the fire.
Officers say there is no evidence as to whether or not the man was wearing his seat belt because of the extent of the fire damage on the truck.
