Inside News


One-Vehicle Crash
Firefighters with Lamesa Fire Rescue (above) look over the wrecked remains of a 2007 Saturn Ion that was involved in a very serious one-vehicle rollover on Wednesday evening about 15 miles east of Lamesa along U.S. Highway 180. Officials said the car rolled, becoming airborne and striking the electrical utility pole seen in the background several feet above the ground. The pole was split almost in half from the impact. Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to cut the roof of the car and peel it and the driver’s door back, so firefighters and medical personnel with Medical Arts Hospital EMS could remove the unresponsive driver from inside the vehicle.
