Six-Year Old Girl Dies in Rollover Accident South of Premont

A six-year old girl was killed in a rollover accident about four miles south of Premont just after 12:30 a.m. Thursday on Highway 281.

Department of Public Safety officials said that, for some reason, the pickup truck the young girl was riding in veered off the roadway at a high rate of speed and hit a culvert, causing it to overturn.

The six-year old was sent to Driscoll Children's Hospital via HALO Flight. Once there, she was pronounced dead.

The 20-year old driver and a 14-year old male passenger of the truck were taken to Christus Spohn Alice in stable condition. The crash is still under investigation.
