A man was transported to Wise Regional Health System early Friday morning after his vehicle rolled on U.S. 380 east of Decatur.

Phillip Garrett of Runaway Bay was driving eastbound on 380 near County Road 4004 at 3:45 a.m. when he saw a deer, said Department of Public Safety spokesperson Lonny Haschel.

Garrett swerved to miss the deer and overcorrected to the left, which caused the vehicle to roll.

According to Wise County dispatch, a helicopter was called to transport the patient, but it was unable to fly due to fog.

Medic 1 transported Garrett to WRHS in Decatur with non-life threatening injuries.
