Two People Killed In Rollover Accident East Of Ropesville

Two people are dead and five others are hospitalized following a rollover accident in Hockley County.

It happened just after 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. DPS troopers say the driver of an SUV was traveling North on Highway 62-82 when she lost control East of Ropesville. The SUV flipped several times before landing on its side. One man was thrown out of the vehicle.

DPS Corporal John Gonzales said another woman, not wearing her seatbelt, died at the scene of the accident. "Please put your seatbelts on. This is obviously a crash that has shown if you're not wearing your seatbelt you're going to get ejected," said DPS Corporal John Gonzales.

44-year-old Patsy Barron was pronounced dead at the scene. The six other people in the SUV were taken to Lubbock hospitals. 68-year-old Laurence Barron died at University Medical Center. 18-year-old Zachery Cambell is in a UMC operating room as of Tuesday evening. 44-year-old Deborah Cambell is at the same hospital in satisfactory condition. At Covenant, 36-year-old Denise Barron and two children are in fair condition.
