A truck driver was air lifted to Medical City Denton after rolling over into an embankment off the U.S. 287/81 exit off State Highway 114 in Rhome Friday morning.

A Bowie fireman who witnessed the wreck helped extricate the driver, a 54-year-old female Dallas resident. She sustained serious injuries, said Rhome Police Sgt. Brody Brown.

“Probably the wind was involved was this,” Brown said. “The witness we have doesn’t think she was going fast.”

The wreck occurred around 9:15 a.m. The air ambulance arrived to transport the injured at 9:40 a.m.

The driver’s name is being withheld until Rhome PD can contact the driver’s family.
