GOLIAD - A 19-year-old Victoria man was critically injured Tuesday morning after a one-vehicle crash about 2 miles inside the Goliad County line.

Hunter Reid Tipton was taken to DeTar Hospital Navarro by Goliad Emergency Medical Services after he rolled his 1997 Chevrolet S-10 on U.S. Highway 59 about 8 a.m., said Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Trooper Gerald Bryant.

Tipton was traveling north when he made a lane change and lost control of his truck, Bryant said.

"He was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the truck," said Bryant.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Tipton was listed in critical condition, said a DeTar Hospital Navarro spokesperson.
