CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A rollover accident near Everhart sent one man to the hospital on Sunday.

Witnesses told police that an elderly man in a sport utility vehicle appeared to be speeding and tried to change lanes on Staples, near the Everhart intersection. He clipped the back of another vehicle, causing his SUV to rollover.

Police said speed was a factor.

"Do the speed limit. That's my only advice," said Captain Russell Sherman of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "A lot of engineering goes in to determine what is safe, and people need to follow them."

The driver in the other vehicle walked away with minor injuries. The driver of the SUV will be ticketed for following too closely.
