Authorities are investigating three separate crashes over the weekend in Sanilac County.

The first happened about 12:53 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 26 on Ubly Road near Shabbona Road in Argyle Township.

Investigators said a 2000 Chevy Silverado driven by a 26-year-old Applegate man was southbound on Ubly Road when the driver reportedly fell asleep.

The truck went off the road and then back on the road, causing the driver to over-correct and lose control. The truck then went into a ditch before flipping and coming to rest on its wheels.

The SUV went into a ditch and flipped before coming to rest on its wheels.

The driver, a 40-year-old Carsonville man, was taken by ambulance to McKenzie Memorial Hospital for treatment. He was later transported to Covenant Hospital in Saginaw.
