A driver from Houston lost control of his vehicle, as he was traveling East on the south Service Road  of Interstate 10 just passed the state line Chevron on 23rd Street Friday afternoon.

Orange Police was contacted by Acadian Ambulance Service that they were in route to a one-vehicle rollover crash on the southbound service road around 2 p.m. A Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper was the first officer to arrive on the scene, where he found the victim exiting the vehicle on his own.

According to officers on scene, the driver of a green Honda Civic, came around the corner of the service road, and lost control of his vehicle. The vehicle flipped several times and landed on its side.

The driver was assessed on scene by Acadian personnel along with Orange Fire Department First Responders.
