A MAN is recovering in hospital after a single vehicle rollover in the rural area in the early hours of Thursday morning.

At 4.30am on Thursday, police were called to a rollover on Beddington Rd, Herbert.

NT Police Watch Commander Michael Fields said a 41-year-old man was found trapped in the car.

The black sedan was found on its roof with extensive damage. “Fire crews have managed to cut the male party from the vehicle and he was conveyed by St John’s Ambulance to Royal Darwin Hospital for medical attention with a broken leg and minor abrasions in a stable condition,” he said.

“It would appear from initial investigat­ions that speed was a factor in the accident.”

Police are calling on anyone who may have dashcam footage or informatio­n about the incident to call 131444.
