ECTOR COUNTY - New details on the one car rollover that left two people dead near Highway 385 and Highway 158.

The wreck happened just after 8:30 Saturday night when a silver Expedition flipped over.

Troopers say the driver of the SUV, 19-year-old Richard Olivias was heading northbound on 385 towards Andrews when he started drifting into the left lane.

After that, he overcorrected, and rolled several times.

Olivias was taken to Medical Center Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, but the two passengers inside the car at the time of the crash, died at the scene.

One of the passengers has been identified as 18-year-old Chelsea Valenzuela from Andrews.

The other passenger's name will not be released because they are underage.

DPS officials tell us they're still investigating how it all happened.
