Texas Department of Public Safety troopers investigate a single-vehicle rollover Thursday night on South Highway 385.

Trooper Pryor Templeton said Luz Flores was driving a Ford Explorer north on Highway 385 when she swerved to avoid another vehicle.

She drove into the median and rolled in the southbound lane. She was taken to Medical Center Hospital with minor injuries, he said.

The pickup ended up upside down in the southbound lanes of Highway 385. Traffic slowed around the accident but didn't stop as troopers investigated the wreck.

“You can still see the paint on here,” Templeton said while pointing at the rims of the pickup. “She kind of just rolled over.”
