Wreck in Johnson County kills 1, injures 2

A 3-year-old girl was in critical condition at Cook Children’s Medical Center.

One person was killed and two were injured Saturday afternoon in a one-vehicle rollover on U.S. 67 west of Cleburne.

A 2003 GMC Envoy driven by Raul Zavala was westbound on the highway when it left the roadway for an unknown reason, “possibly to avoid a collision with another vehicle,” said Senior Trooper Dub Gillum of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Zavala overcorrected, which caused the Envoy to flip several times, Gillum said.

A female passenger, Florina Zavala, was fatally injured. A 3-year-old girl was transported to Cook Children’s Medical Center, where she was in critical condition Saturday night, Gillum said.

The driver was in serious condition at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.

The investigation was still underway but had been hampered by a language barrier, Gillum said.
