Grandmother dies day after crash near Idalou

LUBBOCK COUNTY, TX (KCBD) -

A 60-year-old woman is dead after a rollover accident near Idalou Sunday afternoon.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says Teresa Dutton was turning into the Apple Country Orchard on Highway 62/82, four miles east of Idalou, when a Toyota truck also headed eastbound rear-ended her. Dutton's Dodge van rolled three times partially ejecting her. Dutton was with her four grandchildren ages 10, 5, 4 and 2.

Many of the workers and visitors at the Apple Country Orchard were steps away from the accident in the parking lot. Before they got to the scene, they came to the rescue by taking care of the children.

Dutton was taken by Aerocare to Covenant Hospital where she died on Monday.

The 10 year-old was taken to Covenant Children's Hospital with a broken leg. The other children were released to their parents.

Larry Elkins, 53, the driver of the truck suffered no injuries.  No tickets or charges have been filed.  

DPS says everyone was wearing a seatbelt and in the proper restraints.
