In the early hours of Monday morning, a 1 vehicle rollover accident resulted in the driver being arrested. The accident occurred at approximately 3:56am when a 2002 Lincoln Blackwood pick up being driven by Aram Garcia of Liberal was westbound on County Road 3 in the vicinity of Road I when he went off the roadway for an unknown reason. The pickup rolled and came to rest in the north ditch. Garcia was arrested on scene, and 2 passengers in the pick up, Vidal Melendez and Alex Rodriguez were taken to Southwest Medical Center to be treated for their injuries.
