A local man was lucky to escape serious injury following a one vehicle accident on the Piedmont Highway just south of the baseball fields in Centre Saturday morning.
The wreck occurred just after 5am as the man was traveling south on Highway 9.
It is not known if the man fell asleep, but his car veered into the northbound lane before overturning in a ditch.
Apart from a few cuts, the man, who lives just down the road from where the wreck occurred, escaped serious injury.
He was treated at the scene and did not require a trip to the hospital.
The wreck did close both lanes of Highway 9 in the area for close to an hour.
