A Friday evening accident caused the two occupants of a Silver Ford Ranger to be flown to Medical Center Hospital in Odessa.
The one-vehicle rollover occurred in the east bound lanes of I-20 about 5 miles outside Big Spring around 7 p.m. A male and female passenger â€” names unknown and not released by DPS officials at the time â€” were treated on scene before being flown to the hospital.
Two ambulances and two Air Evac helicopters were called to the scene, as well as the Howard County Sheriff's Office, Big Spring Fire Department and DPS.
According to DPS, it appeared neither occupant of the vehicle had life-threatening injuries.
It appeared the vehicle, which was registered out of Hobbs, N.M., went out control into a counterclockwise spin, left the roadway and rolled one and a half times, according to officials at the scene.
The accident is still under investigation.
