 A rollover accident occurred Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 22, on Highway 105, in between 2802 and the Orange/Jasper county line, about 100 yards from the scene of an earlier vehicle fire caused by a mechanical fault less than an hour before.

Orange County Deputy Scott Jacks confirmed that there were five children and two adults in the overturned SUV that rolled on the highway shoulder.

The preliminary crash investigation indicates the vehicle swerved to avoid striking another vehicle that was turning left.
