One Alice man was sent to CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Alice after his Hyundai SUV rolled over during a three-car accident Saturday afternoon on Main Street.

Joshua Garcia was heading eastbound in the 1100 block of Main Street in his white Hyundai SUV shortly before 1 p.m.

As he passed the intersection of Main Street and Texas Boulevard, Luis Estringel was exiting the driveway of the Churchs Fried Chicken Restaurant on Main Street in his gold Chevy Silverado.

Alice Police Officer Rene Garcia said Estringel failed to yield to traffic, and Garcia's vehicle struck the Silverado, causing the SUV to flip over on its roof.

It traveled across traffic, striking a Blue F-150 in the westbound lane of Main Street, coming to a rest in the center turning lane.

Guardian EMS was on the scene quickly, and Garcia was removed from his vehicle and transported to the hospital. He was the only individual in the SUV at the time of the accident.

Estringel's vehicle sustained extensive front-end damage, and both the truck and the SUV had to be towed away from the accident by Danny's Wrecker Service.

Estringel was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way from a private drive. He and his wife, Anita, were not injured in the accident.

The mother and daughter in the F-150 did not require medical assistance.
