TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A commercial truck rollover sent one man to the hospital with serious injuries early Sunday morning, according to Northwest Fire District PIO Brian Keeley.

Northwest Fire was alerted to a rollover accident involving a person trapped inside the vehicle at 12:22 a.m.

When crews arrived, they found a large commercial truck upside down on its roof. The fuel tank had become severed from the vehicle and fuel had spilled out into the ground around the vehicle.

Crews were able to stabilize the truck and removed the glass from the front windshield to free the driver trapped in the truck. At the same time, firefighting foam was sprayed across the area, in order to reduce the risk of fire from the fuel that had poured out around the vehicle.

The driver was taken to the trauma center at UAMC in serious but stable condition. Marana Police and Northwest Fire remained on the scene to investigate.

Tangerine Road was closed in both directions at the underpass of I-10 for several hours overnight while tow trucks arrived and the scene was cleared.
