LUBBOCK,TX (AP) - The Quitman ISD Interim-Superintendent Rick Flanagan confirms that a vehicle on a school trip was involved in an accident near Canton, around 2:40 p.m. Thursday.

The students were high school FFA students heading to San Antonio. Quitman High School confirms that the fatality is 15-year-old student Skylar Carpenter. Trinity Mother Frances Health System says they were told that there are 6 injuries related to the wreck. Two of the people involved were flown by helicopter and one by ambulance to Mother Frances.

According to AP, Trooper Jean Dark of the Texas Department of Public Safety says the teacher driving her personal vehicle apparently overcorrected when a front wheel slipped off the pavement and veered across and off the road. The SUV flipped, ejecting the 15-year-old girl.

Mother Frances reports that one 15-year-old female is in critical condition. A 17-year-old female and an 18-year-old male are in fair condition.
