A vehicle carrying six teenagers lost control and flipped in wet weather Thursday afternoon on U.S. 59, injuring one.
The northbound vehicle hydroplaned about noon and overturned in the highway’s median, coming to a rest on the driver’s side just north of Edna, said Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
No other vehicles were involved.
Rain was falling and standing water was present on the highway at the time, said San Miguel, who had no other details about the crash.
All but one teen, whose rear seat did not have a functioning seat belt, were properly restrained. The unrestrained teenager was taken to the Jackson County Hospital in Edna with injuries that were not life-threatening. The remaining occupants declined to be taken to the hospital.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
