Highway 36 north near Caldwell is back open after a major rollover accident that trapped two men and ejected a female passenger.

The accident happened just after 3 p.m., just 5 miles north of Caldwell on Highway 36.

Burleson County Sheriff’s Department say a tire blew out on the Chevrolet Suburban that all three were in which caused the SUV to rollover.

Investigators say the two males trapped were sent by ambulance to a local hospital for minor injuries. The woman ejected from the SUV was transported by helicopter to a hospital for major injuries.
