COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - On Sunday evening, a rollover accident on Interstate 185 sent a man to the hospital. 

Police say a man driving an SUV tried to merge onto the interstate at Buena Vista Road, when his vehicle jumped a guardrail and went down an embankment.

The driver, 33-year-old Demarcus Jacobs, was ejected and rushed to the Medical Center -- but not before he told emergency crews he had a passenger who was also thrown from the car.

Monday, police determined there was no evidence of a second passenger.

Jacobs condition is still unknown. At the time of the accident, his injuries were non-life-threatening.
