CHICO, Calif. - One man is in the hospital after getting seriously hurt from a rollover crash on a portion of Highway 99 in Chico Friday morning.

Officer Lynch from the California Highway Patrol (CHP) Chico told Action News Now the wreck happened just before 7:30 a.m. Friday, involving one truck with two occupants.

CHP says the truck was traveling north on Highway 99 just after the on-ramp off East First Avenue. Officers say the female driver was on the fast lane and as she was about to make a lane change she quickly noticed two objects in the middle of the highway.

The driver tried to avoid the objects in the road but was unable, causing her to lose control of the vehicle. 

The truck then rolled over and landed on one of the trees off the highway embankment. Soon after, firefighters arrived on the scene to help the male passenger who was stuck in the truck.

An ambulance took the injured man to a nearby hospital, according to CHP.

One lane was blocked off as officers investigated the scene. Officers said they do not believe that alcohol or drugs were factors regarding this crash.

The female driver only suffered minor injuries, according to Officer Lynch.
