A Rhome teenager was injured in a one-vehicle rollover east of Chico early Sunday morning.
Investigators believe Miguel Infante, 19, was eastbound on Farm Road 1810, near the Sandy Creek bridge, when he lost control of the 1996 Ford pickup he was driving just after 4 a.m.
The pickup rolled across the westbound lanes and shoulder, before coming to a 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.
Both lanes of 1810 were shut down to land the helicopter on the road.
Investigators believe alcohol may have played a factor.
There were no other passengers or vehicles involved.
Chico Volunteer Fire Department, Wise County medics and State Troopers responded.
