A North Texas man is in the hospital following an accident down a canyon.
The accident happened early Wednesday morning on State Road 7 at the entrance of Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
New Mexico State Police say 23-year-old Clyde Elliot was driving north when he failed to negotiate a curve and drove off the roadway.
That's when the SUV traveled down a canyon and rolled multiple times.
Elliot was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the car.
He was taken to the hospital in El Paso with multiple injuries.
