A Lower Burrell man suffered serious injuries Saturday after his car went airborne and rolled over in a one-vehicle crash on Route 28 in Buffalo.

State police said David L. Umstott, 29, was traveling south on Route 28 around 3 a.m. when his car went off the side of the road, hit a culvert and a tree before going airborne. It rolled over numerous times, stopping upside-down off the road.

State police said Umstott was uncooperative and wanting to go to sleep. He was able to give his name and date of birth, but was unsure of how he crashed. He consented to a blood test before being taken to Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side by helicopter, where he is in serious condition, state police said.

Charges were pending blood test results, state police said.
