Two people were injured and one person was killed in a crash just east of Colorado City in Mitchell County on Monday. 

According to DPS, 51-year-old Clemente Gallegos Ramos, 51, of Dallas, was driving a 1999 Dodge pickup on I-20 going West when the tread on the rear driver's side tire came off. The vehicle went into a side skid and crashed into the guardrail head-on. The vehicle rolled over onto its top and came to rest on the roadway. Clemente Ramos died on the scene.

One passenger, 77-year-old Juventina Ramos, of Durango, was brought to UMC in Lubbock with critical injuries.
