Three people are taken to the hospital in stable condition after their SUV rolls over near the I-35 checkpoint. Our Annette Garcia joins us with more. Annette? "Authorities say two people in their late teens or early 20's and a woman in her 40's were all taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries--possibly, thanks to the fact that they were wearing a seat belt. This was the scene around 10 this morning on I-35 at mile marker 28. State troopers say it appears the vehicle had a blow-out while headed northbound. And the driver hit the brakes and over corrected before losing control and ending up in the southbound lane. 'When she came into the center median the vehicle flipped or rolled approximately three times,' says Josh Coleman, a State Trooper. First responders say the fact that every person in the vehicle was wearing their seat belt may have saved their lives. Meanwhile state troopers say there is something all drivers can learn from accidents like this one. We'll have more coming up tonight at ten."
