Sunday morning accident leaves teen still hospitalizes
Zephyr teen, Jessica Armour, was involved in a single-vehicle rollover accident Sunday morning and sent her to the hospital, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Duke Hoy. The teen is currently still unconscious.
Armour, 17, is the daughter of Robert and Teresa Armour. She is a varsity cheerleader at Zephyr High School and a member of Zephyr FFA.
Armour was traveling on FM 590 near Zephyr when she flipped her Toyota Scion around 2:18 a.m. She was the only passenger in the vehicle and was ejected. She was transported by ambulance because weather conditions prevented a helicopter transport.
After arriving at Brownwood Regional Medical Center, Armour had surgery and then was flown by plane to Cooks Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth later Sunday.
Next Sunday, May 29, there will be a fundraiser at the Diamond R Store & Café in Zephyr from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. It is donation only and all funds raised benefit Armour’s family to help with medical and travel expenses. If you would like to make a donation, click here to go to their donation page.
Rollover accidents have a higher rate of fatalities and account for nearly 35 percent of all deaths in vehicle crashes. Some vehicles are more likely to rollover than others and some vehicles are not properly designed to help reduce the chance of flipping.
