RENO, Nev. -- Speed, a flat tire, and driving under the influence ended with a flipped car, and a trip to the hospital and then jail for a man Saturday morning, according to police.

The roll-over accident happened on Longley just south of Rock before 9am. A Reno Police spokesman says 25-year old Sean Artiere was driving too fast around a corner with a flat tire when his SUV flipped.

Artiere was taken to the hospital for evaluation and is now facing the likelihood of DUI charges. Police suspect he was under the influence of alcohol, marijuana and prescription drugs but tests are needed for confirmation.
