MIDLAND COUNTY - Three people are lucky to be alive after a blown tire led to a rollover on I-20.

State Troopers tell NewsWest 9, the rollover happened around 8:30 Saturday morning when three California travelers rolled their ford pickup twice near mile marker 139.

Officials say they were driving west when their right front tire blew out on the Interstate.

It caused them to flip in the center median and into the eastbound lane of traffic.

It also forced troopers to divert traffic off of I-20 for about an hour.

All three were taken to Midland Memorial where they were all recovering from non-life threatening injuries.
