A San Antonio man was injured in a one-vehicle rollover at the intersection of state Highway 111 and U.S. Highway 183 on Monday.

Mario Albert Garcia, 53, was west on state Highway 111, and was going too fast when he attempted to make a right turn onto U.S. Highway 183, Department of Public Safety Trooper Gerald Bryant said.

Garcia's vehicle went across the northbound lanes of U.S. Highway 183 and rolled onto its left side into the median area, Bryant said.

Garcia was flown to University Hospital in San Antonio with serious injuries.

He was driving a 2005 Peterbilt tractor-trailer.

Bryant said when the vehicle rolled onto its left side, trash spilled onto the roadway.

The crash was investigated by Trooper Drew Alexander.

Trooper Kevin Henneke, the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office and Yoakum Fire and emergency medical service assisted.
