Emergency medical technicians carry one of seven passengers of a Ford SUV that rolled over on the northbound side of U.S. Highway 59 to an ambulance.

Three people were transported with critical injuries after a one-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 59 North and South Laurent Street about 6 p.m.

Four additional people, three of them minors, were transported with noncritical injuries, said Victoria Fire Battalion Chief Roger Hempel.

All seven of the injured were taken to DeTar Hospital Navarro or Citizens Medical Center.

The Ford SUV was traveling northbound on 59 when the driver lost control for an unknown reason, and the vehicle rolled several times. At least two people are thought to have been ejected from the vehicle, Hempel said.

The wreck is under investigation by the Victoria Police Department.

The names and conditions of the injured were not available Sunday.
