A single vehicle rollover accident near Raymondville left four people dead and sent four more to the hospital with serious injuries resulting, officials reported.
Department of Public Safety officials identified the victims killed in the wreck as Patricia Castro, 30, of Mercedes, Jason Anthony Mayhood, 35, of Brownsville, Enrique Rodriguez, 20, of Edcouch and Sanricardo Ramirez, 47, of Harlingen.
Among those injured was a three-year-old girl, who was transported to Valley Baptist Medical Center via helicopter.
According to police reports, the vehicle involved in the rollover accident was identified as a GMC Yukon SUV. The vehicle was traveling southbound on Highway 77 at the time of the auto accident.
Police said the driver of the Yukon may have lost control of the SUV and attempted to regain control, overcorrecting the vehicle. The vehicle swerved off the highway and overturned multiple times before coming to a rest nearby. At least four of the 8 passengers in the vehicle were ejected as a result of the rollover crash.
The three men who were killed in the wreck were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The woman was transported to the hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their loved ones.
Rollover crashes can sometimes provoke many questions among victims involved and the loved ones of those who have passed as a result of injuries incurred. But while some incidents where a vehicle overturns may be caused by driver error, other situations may result from auto defects, such as defective seatbelts, bad airbags and even flawed glass; all of which can leave victims vulnerable to auto ejection.
