TRIPP -- A man sustained minor injuries Tuesday afternoon in a one-vehicle rollover crash 4 miles west of Tripp.

At 4:15 p.m., the 49-year-old man was eastbound on U.S. Highway 18 in a 2004 Ford Expedition. According to the South Dakota Department of Public Safety, the man fell asleep, and the vehicle crossed the road's center line.

When the driver woke up, he reportedly overcorrected, causing the vehicle to go into the north ditch and roll.

No charges are pending against the man, who was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was transported to the hospital in Parkston for his injuries.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
