Rollover Accident Sends Oil Field Worker to the Hospital

DRISCOLL - An oil field worker was seriously injured in a rollover accident near Driscoll this morning.

DPS troopers say the 49 year old man had just gotten off an overnight shift and was heading home to Corpus Christi. He was on U.S. 77 when he drove his pickup off the highway near County Road 28, that's about two miles north of Driscoll. The pickup went into the grassy median where it hit a guardrail and rolled over twice. The truck landed on its roof.

The driver had to be taken by Halo flight to a Corpus Christi hospital with possible internal injuries.

DPS investigators suspect the man fell asleep at the wheel.
