One person was flown to a Fort Worth hospital following a one-vehicle rollover on U.S. 81/287 in New Fairview Sunday morning. A pickup was southbound on U.S. 81/287 around 9:30 a.m. when the driver ran off the shoulder into a ditch, hit a culvert, went airborne and then into a roll. The pickup came to rest upside down in a ditch on the west side of the roadway, just north of County Road 4421. The driver was briefly trapped until first responders could get him out. The single occupant, a man with an Alvarado address, was flown from the scene to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. Southbound U.S. 81/287 was reduced to one lane for about 1 1/2 hours, and it was shut down briefly while the helicopter landed on the roadway.
