Two men transported following Monday morning rollover wreck
Two men were transported to DeTar Hospital Navarro on Monday morning following a one-vehicle wreck.
Around 10:30 a.m., Matias Mendez, of San Antonio, was southbound on U.S. Highway 87 North near Kingwood Drive in a white Chevrolet truck when he fell asleep and drove into the grass, said Brian Babcock, a trooper with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
When he woke and realized the error, he overcorrected, driving across the road and rolling multiple times into a ditch.
Both Mendez and his passenger, San Antonio resident Nicholas Duran, were taken to the hospital.
Roger Hempel, battalion chief with the Victoria Fire Department, said the men were taken to the hospital as a precautionary measure, and both men walked to the ambulance.
No citations were issued at the scene.
