At about 9:45 p.m., a 37-year-old man driving northbound in front of the Fountain Heights Apartments at 3424 S. River Rd. rolled his 2000 Toyota Tundra after reaching a high rate of speed, St. George Police Officer Derek Lewis said. The man survived the rollover, but he suffered extensive injuries to his lower extremities.
