Two critically injured in rollover in south Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Two people are in critical condition following a rollover in south Lubbock.

DPS troopers say 22 year old Daniel Roerick was driving at a high rate of speed on Indiana when he ran a stop sign at Woodrow Road, around 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

The car flew about 100 feet and turned in midair. It landed sideways and then rolled several times into a field, where it hit a tree.

Roerick's passenger, 26 year old Lauren Hopper, was ejected from the vehicle. She was flown to UMC with life-threatening injuries.

Roerick was also taken to UMC.

Investigators say Roerick and Hopper were both wearing seat belts.

As of Friday evening, Hopper was still in the hospital, while Roerick is no longer listed as a patient.
