A rollover car wreck on U.S. 59 injured four people Thursday, authorities said.
None of the injuries were life-threatening, said Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Officers with the Victoria County Sheriff’s Office, the Victoria County Fire Department and DPS responded to the wreck about 3 p.m. Thursday.
The wreck involved just one car, and was caused when the car’s rear right tire blew out as it traveled on U.S. 59 near Midway Road. The driver of the car, Alexander Rodriguez, 18, then lost control of the car and it flipped several times before eventually coming to rest upside down, San Miguel said.
Three passengers were also in the car. After officers had arrived at the location of the wreck and began checking the identifications of the car’s occupants, police discovered that one of the passengers, Juan Rodriguez, had an outstanding warrant in Harris County. Rodriguez was arrested at the scene of the wreck, San Miguel said. Court records from Harris County show that Rodriguez, 45, was arrested April 7 on a misdemeanor criminal trespass charge. A warrant for his arrest was issued April 10.
The car’s driver and all three passengers, including Rodriguez, were transported to Citizens Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, San Miguel said.
