A man is in the hospital tonight after getting pinned inside his wrecked car early Saturday morning.

Colorado State Patrol reported to a one car accident on Highway 50 right near mile marker 52 around 5 a.m. Saturday morning. The vehicle was traveling east bound on Highway 50 when the driver lost control, over-corrected and sent the car rolling.

The driver was not ejected from the car, but was unable to get out. Fire crews had to help get him out.

The 22-year old driver from Grand Junction was taken to the hospital with serious but is expected to survive. Speed and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the crash.
