YUMA, Ariz. (13 On Your Side) - A Brawley man is hospitalized after the big rig he was driving rolled over onto its roof.

It happened yesterday at around 1:00 pm, according to California Highway Patrol.

Firefighters had to pull out injured Marco Samano, 35, from the big rig, which was carrying manure.

Paramedics rushed Samano to El Centro Regional Medical Center with wounds and possible fractures. 

CHP records show Samano was headed eastbound when he drifted onto the dirt, over-corrected himself, then drove over both traffic lanes and rolled over.

The accident is under investigation.
