A Chevrolet Trailblazer rests in the median facing southbound traffic on U.S. Highway 59 Tuesday. Samantha Simons, 21, was taken to Citizens Medical Center after rolling the SUV several times about 4:30 p.m.

A woman was taken to the hospital after a one-vehicle rollover on U.S. Highway 59, just south of Inez at 4:27 p.m Tuesday.

Samantha Simons, 21, of Telferner, was southbound in a Chevrolet Trailblazer when she swerved from the right lane into the center grass median. Her SUV flipped several times and traveled nearly 100 yards, said Trooper James Vinson, with the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Simons was taken to Citizens Medical Center, where she was still being evaluated Tuesday night, said a hospital spokesperson.

Vinson cited Simons, who was wearing her seatbelt, for failure to control speed.
