Childress, Texas (KFDA) - One woman is dead after a rollover accident eight miles Northwest of Childress.

Sunday afternoon at approximately 12:15 p.m. a Ford Expedition, towing a U-Haul trailer, was traveling northwest on US-287. The trailer began to fishtail, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, Gladys Roath, 57, of Miami, Florida, was pronounced deceased on scene by Childress County Justice of the Peace, Randall Rister.

A passenger, Alan Roath, 58, of Miami, Florida was transported to Childress Regional Medical Center in Childress with serious injuries.
