TEXAS CITY — A 7-year-old child was taken by air transport to the University of Texas Medical Branch with critical injuries Wednesday after being ejected from a SUV on state Highway 146.

Preliminary reports indicate a 2001 Ford Expedition was heading north on the highway shortly before 5 p.m. when the vehicle veered off the road and hit some gravel on the shoulder of the roadway, according to Texas City Police Capt. Brian Goetschius. The driver attempted to maneuver the SUV back on the pavement and braked, causing the vehicle to flip twice and land in the grassy median of the roadway.
