Posted: Updated:

One man went to the hospital after a rollover crash in Weston Monday morning.

According to Everest Metro Police Sgt. Terry Peterson, the man was traveling eastbound on Schofield Avenue when his car veered into the median and rolled, taking out a light pole and several signs. This happened at 7:45 a.m.

According to Weston Fire Chief Steve Meilahn, the driver had to be extricated from the vehicle. Meilahn says the driver was transported to Ministry Saint Clare's Hospital in Weston.

Everest Metro Police Sgt. Rob Dickerson told Newsline 9 the man had minor injuries.

Dickerson said the driver had not defrosted the windshield properly, preventing him from seeing clearly and causing the crash.
