Driver recovering after rollover accident in Gering this morning

Posted: Updated:

A Gering man is recovering after a rollover accident near the 300 block of M Street this morning in Gering.

Crews responded to the scene across from the Oregon Trail Lounge just after 10 a.m. 

Gering police say the driver, 51-year-old Ron Wilson, was turning out of a convenience store parking lot when he began to skid.

Wilson told officials he avoided hitting on-coming traffic and over-corrected his Ford F-150.

Officials say that's when Wilson appeared to have hit a snow bank causing him to roll about one-and-a-quarter times into a ditch.

Gering police say Wilson was wearing his seatbelt and was not speeding prior to the accident.

Wilson was not seriously injured.
