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.

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.
