2 Badly Injured in Rollover Near Water Valley
WATER VALLEY, TX — A Chevrolet Blazer rolled across multiple lanes of traffic north of San Angelo on U.S. 87 north Saturday afternoon.

The crash happened just north of where FM 2084 intersects U.S. 87 north of Water Valley just before 4 p.m.
No other vehicles were involved. One occupant was airlifted to Shannon Medical Center. Witnesses at the scene stated he appeared to be in “pretty bad shape.” The other occupant was rushed to Shannon in an ambulance. San Angelo EMS arrived at the scene fairly quickly.
