Man arrested after causing a rollover accident

Posted: Updated:

A text message was the beginning cause of one man being sent to jail Saturday morning.

Officers said that the man was checking his phone when he drove into the wrong lane and crashed into an oncoming Jeep Liberty, causing it to roll over.

"It looks like it was an error in his judgement to use a cell phone while driving," said Sam Weisenburgur, CCPD.

The man was taken to jail, but for charges unrelated to the accident. Weisenburgur said that when they arrived, they caught the man trying to hide some marijuana down a storm drain.

Everyone involved in the wreck only suffered minor injuries.
