A rollover crash near 48th and Woodland sends the driver to the hospital.

It happened just before 1 p.m. Saturday.

Police say the car hit a fire hydrant and rolled. They say they had to pull the driver out through the car window.

"We had a couple witnesses say he was driving erratically throughout the last couple miles through the neighborhood, ended up shearing off a fire hydrant and rolling the car where it sits," Capt. Mark Gronewold, Lincoln Fire and Rescue, said.

48th Street near the accident was closed off for about an hour.

The driver was taken to the hospital. His injuries aren't life-threatening.
