The rodeo kept emergency workers on their toes, but they also responded to a number of medical calls to other locations in the Sonoita area over the Labor Day weekend.

A 911 caller reported that a vehicle had rolled over and slammed into a mesquite tree at Milepost 40.6 along State Route 83 on Monday, Sept. 3, at 9:30 a.m. An officer from the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) said a pickup driven by 54 year old Michael Campbell of Tucson was pulling a camper trailer when the trailer came loose from the tow hitch and caused both vehicles to roll. DPS reported that the truck rolled a quarter of the way over before landing on the driver's side. Campbell and his passenger, 61-year-old Betty Potter of Tucson, both refused medical treatment at the scene.

A Sonoita-Elgin Fire Department spokesperson said the occupants appeared to have minor injuries and that they were wearing seatbelts.
