A rollover accident northeast of Slaton left a father and son trapped in the cab of an 18 wheeler this afternoon. Once they were rescued, Aerocare took 35-year-old David Perez to Covenant Medical Center where he remains under evaluation in their emergency room as of Tuesday night. The condition of his son was not available.
DPS troopers say around five o'clock Perez was traveling on county road 7300 when the rollover occurred. Apparently the weight of the load the truck was carrying kept the two trapped inside the cab. It took emergency responders more than hour to release them.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
