A driver that was towing a utility trailer lost traction on the icy road. The vehicle then over-turned into the center median. A 15-year-old girl from Denton, Texas was ejected from the vehicle. She was air-lifted to United Regional Hospital where she remains in serious condition. There is no word yet on whether or not the girl was wearing her seatbelt. The crash left three other passengers pinned inside of the vehicle. According to law enforcement, they suffered serious injuries as well. In addition, three other people suffered minor injuries. Many questions remain regarding this accident which is still under investigation.
