TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - A single vehicle rollover accident sent one man to the hospital Thursday.
Capt. Grant Cesarek with the Rural/Metro Fire Department tells KGUN9 that the accident happened on Palo Verde Road north of Benson Highway and involved a driver not wearing his seat belt.
Cesarek says the car rolled one time and ended up on its roof. The car ended up in a small drainage ditch off the road.
Responding crews had to use the jaws of life to get the driver out.
He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department says that several 911 calls came in regarding a car that was swerving on the road before the accident.
