HOUSTON -— A driver was trapped inside his sport utility vehicle after rolling it on the Beltway 8 frontage road overnight.

Police were called to the W. Sam Houston Parkway frontage road at Elmsworth around midnight Thursday.

Investigators said the driver of an SUV traveling on the feeder road southbound either did not see the entrance ramp or tried to make a last second lane change. The vehicle hit the divider, causing the SUV to roll over once and then land upright.

After being freed from the wreckage, the driver was sent to the hospital in stable condition.
