A rollover accident o Sunday morning on I 25 between N. Academy and Woodman Rd. sent a family of three to local hospitals instead of their Thanksgiving destination.

A black SUV traveling on the interstate hit the center barrier wall rolling the vehicle on its passenger side trapping two adults and one child.

The driver was taken to Penrose Hospital while a 2 year-old boy and his mother were taken to Memorial Central. The injuries to the mother and child did not appear to be life threatening and the father was taken by ambulance with a neck brace and backboard as a precaution. All occupants are expected to recover and all were wearing restraints.

State Patrol reported that several bystanders tried to help the family before emergency crews could arrive. The family was traveling from Texas to Littleton for Thanksgiving. The cause of the accident is still under investigation but Colorado State Patrol reported that the wife of the driver said her husband had suffered some sort of seizure at the time of the accident.

The accident was cleared from the road by about 8:30am Sunday morning.
