COLLEGE MOUND, Texas — Two people were airlifted from a rollover crash in eastern Kaufman County on Friday night.
At approximately 8:08 p.m., the College Mound Fire Department was dispatched to the crash in the 13100 block of Hiram Road. Upon arrival, firefighters discovered an overturned SUV in the ditch and multiple patients in the roadway — prompting a request for two CareFlite medical helicopters and two ground ambulances.
Two of the SUV's four occupants were seriously injured and airlifted to a Dallas-area trauma center. The two other occupants of the vehicle were treated and released on scene.
"Firefighters established a landing zone for the two CareFlite helicopters at a nearby church," read a statement from the College Mound Fire Department. "The medical personal from the first aircraft were shuttled by a firefighter to the scene to assist in patient care."
The Texas Department of Public Safety is investigating the crash.
