Two women in their twenties are in critical condition with multiple life-changing injuries after a man who was driving the pickup they were riding in turned to talk to them, lost control of the truck on rain slicked I-35, and rolled into a ditch early today, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The pickup smashed into a concrete culvert and flipped over several times before landing on its roof near the Zarzamora St. exit on the city's southwest side.

Both of the victims were rushed to the hospital in critical condition with 'life altering' injuries. Herrera was not hurt.
