A Monroe County man was hurt in a serious crash Tuesday afternoon in Jackson County.
The Jackson County Sheriff's Department responded to the 11000 block of U.S. Highway 50 at 3:20 p.m. on a report of a car crash. Authorities say the driver, 49-year-old Steven Bassine, of Bedford, told police that he was traveling east on U.S. 50 when he fell asleep at the wheel.
According to investigators, Bassine's vehicle left the road and struck a culvert. The car then flipped, then rolled at least twice before coming to rest on it's roof. Bassine was trapped and had to be freed from the vehicle by members of the sheriff's department and ambulance personnel.
Bassine was transported to Schneck Medical Center for possible head and leg injuries. His injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
