Seven people were injured in a single-vehicle rollover accident in Pima County Friday night.

Brian Keeley, spokesman for Northwest Fire, said two people were in the front seat of the vehicle, described as an SUV, three people in the rear seat, and two people in the cargo section when the vehicle reportedly rolled over on Aerie Drive around 10 p.m.

The occupants ranged in age of 13 to 19 years old, according to NWFD.

NWFD said one of the occupants was ejected from the vehicle and transported to the hospital by Northwest Fire Paramedics with serious injuries. A second patient was transported by ambulance to the hospital in stable condition and the remaining five occupants were evaluated on scene but declined transport by ambulance, NWFD said.

The Marana Police Department is investigating the crash.

As of 11 p.m. Friday, Aerie was closed between Ina and Thornydale roads. The road is open as of Saturday morning.

    Ruby Torres always thought about having kids. So when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 she decided to undergo in vitro fertilization. "I wanted to one day become a mom," Torres said. "I wasn't sure what was going to happen in my future so I wanted to ensure I had that option and opportunity." Doctors used her eggs and her then-fiance's sperm to form seven embryos, but by the time she was medically cleared to try to get pregnant, they were divorcing.
