Two people were injured overnight while setting up for the Rodeo trail riders making their way into Houston.

It happened around 1am in Memorial Park, which is set up for the trail riders to arrive later today. A man on an ATV lost control and rolled the vehicle. He suffered head injuries and was taken to the hospital, but should be OK.

A second man who was in a golf cart on his way to that accident was also injured in the process, severely injuring his ankle.

Memorial Park has been busier than usual as crews set up in preparation for the trail ride. The trail rides will arrive late this afternoon. The riders stay the night at the park and then participate in the parade downtown Saturday morning.
