The pickup rolled across the westbound lane and shoulder before coming to rest at the bottom of a ravine on the north side of the road.

Infante was pinned in the vehicle and possibly fractured his left arm. He was flown to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

He was listed in good condition Tuesday afternoon.

Both lanes of 1810 were shut down to land the helicopter on the road.

Investigators believe alcohol may have been a factor.

There were no other passengers or vehicles involved.
