2 injured in rollover near Alvord

Two Borger residents were taken to hospitals following a single vehicle rollover near Alvord late Sunday night. Department of Public Safety Trooper Tim Murphy said Michael Libardo Ybarra, 19, was northbound on U.S. 81/287 about 1 1/2 miles north of Alvord when he lost control of his vehicle in a curve, ran off the roadway and rolled into the ditch around 11:15. Ybarra suffered a laceration to his head and was flown to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. A passenger, Alexandria Perez, 18, was taken by ground ambulance to Wise Regional Health System in Decatur. Northbound lanes of U.S. 81/287 were shut down for about 30 minutes so the helicopter could land.
