Amarillo, TX - One person is injured in an SUV rollover on Interstate 40 Tuesday morning.

Texas Department of Public Safety troopers at the scene say the driver of this SUV fell asleep at the wheel around 9:30 this morning.

She then hit the rumble strips on the shoulder, over-corrected and overturned the vehicle into the median on I-40 near Helium Road, just west of Amarillo.

The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, and troopers say two small children properly restrained in safety seats were uninjured in the crash.
