A rollover accident in a South Lincoln neighborhood sends one man to the hospital.  The driver was the only person in the car at the time of the accident.  A witness said the man was conscious when emergency crews got to the scene.  

The rollover happened around 12:30 Tuesday morning on Ryons Street, which is just east of 27th and South streets.  Police said the driver clipped a parked SUV sending the car into a rollover.  A neighbor said he woke up to a large crash sound.  "I looked out and it was just lying on its top.  So, I ran over there to see if somebody was inside and there was one guy in there and I just called 911," Richard Nelson said.  

Emergency crews had to rescue the driver through the car's back window.  Officials said he was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.  The cause of the accident is still being investigated.
