An East Texas man received minor injuries in a rollover accident in Tyler Monday afternoon.

Emergency responders were called to the intersection of Fifth Street and Old Omen Road at 12:51 p.m., said Tyler Police Department Spokesman Don Martin.

Martin said a 25-year-old man in a white Chevrolet car was headed west on Fifth Street when he fell asleep at the wheel and hit a truck in front of him.

The collision caused the man’s car to roll over, landing on its top in the roadway.

The man was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries and was ticketed for failure to control speed, Martin said.
