A woman was hospitalized Tuesday evening after a one-vehicle rollover on Farm to Market Road 1061, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers said.
About 7:45 p.m., the woman was driving a Nissan Murano about five miles west of the Village of Bishop Hills. She was reaching for something in the passenger seat of the SUV when she realized the vehicle was drifting from the roadway. She then overcorrected, causing the Murano to rollover and come to a rest in a ditch off of the westbound lane.
Troopers said the woman suffered minor injuries in the wreck.

“We’re looking for some of the solar megawatts to be connected to distribution substations in New Mexico, and this power could be used to help us meet New Mexico renewable energy mandates,” SPS spokesman Wes Reeves said.
“So that’s why those New Mexico substations were identified. The rest could be connected to our transmission network anywhere in the SPS region.”
