VICTORIA, Texas — A woman was transported Sunday to DeTar Hospital Navarro, after she was cut from her vehicle by emergency medical technicians.

Roxanne Valdez, 24, of Placedo, was driving on Loop 463 near the Guadalupe River bridge when her vehicle left the road, said Trooper Joshua Kelly.

He said Texas Department of Public Safety was notified at 1 p.m. The blue 2008 Nissan Titan pickup rolled numerous times before coming to a rest on its roof, he said. Kelly said he does not yet know why the vehicle left the road.
