Pecos County One man remained in critical condition Monday after a weekend rollover that killed 25-year-old Albert Carrillo and 30-year-old Earl Wright.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety trooper Jaime Galindo, about 7:30 a.m. Saturday a 1999 Dodge Neon and a 2002 GMC Yukon were headed north on Highway 385 when the Yukon collided with the Neon from behind sending both vehicles off the roadway.

The Yukon rolled, throwing out all four passengers, who were not wearing seatbelts, Galindo said. Carrillo and Wright, both of Big Spring, were pronounced dead at the scene.

J.C. Burchett, 23, of Big Spring, remained in critical condition Monday at Pecos County Memorial Hospital, Galindo said. Steven Painter, 27, of Abilene, was upgraded to stable condition, while 50-year-old Sara Peña was released Sunday from Pecos County Memorial Hospital, Galindo said.
