El Paso, TX (12/16/2019) – Two people are injured after a rollover collision occurred in El Paso Thursday night.

The driver of the Hummer, 22-year-old Arturo Meza, was ejected from the vehicle. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

Meza’s passenger, a 15-year-old boy, was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries. A second passenger fled from the scene on foot.
