JANESVILLE—A single-car rollover crash Friday night on the north side of Janesville is being investigated as an intoxicated driving incident.

The crash occurred at 9:20 p.m. Friday on Highway 14 just east of Highway 51 in Janesville. A Chevrolet Trailblazer was traveling westbound on Highway 14 when it crossed the median, went into a ditch, rolled over and came to a stop in a field, Sgt. Ryan Ooms of the Rock County Sheriff's Office said.

An adult male was the only person in the vehicle. He was transported to Mercy Hospital and TRauma Center for treatment of his injuries, Ooms said.

An arrest has not been made, but authorities are investigating the crash as a possible OWI, he said.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office, Janesville Fire Department and Wisconsin State Patrol all responded to the accident.
