A man was hospitalized following a rollover crash reportedly involving alcohol in a construction zone in Lyon Township.
A report from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office states the incident happened around 3:10pm Tuesday when deputies with the Lyon Township substation responded to 8 Mile and Currie Road on the report of a rollover accident with entrapment.
The incident report says upon arrival, deputies observed that the vehicle had struck a construction barrel and came to rest on the roof. The Salem and Lyon Township Fire departments extricated the male subject, identified as a 65-year-old Northville Township man, from the vehicle.
He reportedly told deputies that he had been drinking and fell asleep at the wheel. Paramedics transported the man to Providence Park Hospital in Novi for treatment, where he was admitted and listed in stable condition. Charges are said to be pending blood test results.
