Woman seriously hurt in Loop 101 rollover crash

- A woman was seriously hurt after a rollover crash Thursday night and the Department of Public Safety officials says some Good Samaritans are earning praise for helping her.

This happened an on-ramp to the Loop 101 from 56th Street.  Authorities say the driver lost control and the SUV rolled into an embankment.

The female driver was wearing a seat belt as is okay, but her passenger did not have one on.  The injured woman became stuck until complete strangers came to her aid.

"Upon arrival to the scene, we had three citizens stopped at the scene to assist.. one person was a paramedic, two others that just stopped to assist with traffic, assist with medical needs.. and I just think it was just really impressive that the public actually turned around and came back to the collision to help out somebody.. another citizen. It's just really terrific what they did," said a DPS trooper.

Officers believe that impairment played a role in the crash and the investigation is ongoing.
