Idaho State Police reported Sunday that a Carey man was injured late Saturday night in a single-vehicle rollover on U.S. Highway 93 near Richfield.

In a news release, ISP reported that 32-year-old Ryan Parke was transported "with non-life-threatening injuries" by air ambulance to St. Luke's Magic Valley Regional Medical Center in Twin Falls following the accident shortly after 11:30 p.m.

According to ISP, Parke was northbound in a black Chevrolet Silverado "when he failed to negotiate a curve and went off the roadway." ISP reported that the vehicle flipped forward and came to rest on its right side.

The accident remained under investigation Monday. ISP reported that "alcohol is believed to be a factor."
