Right now a man is recovering at Sacred Heart Medical Center after an early morning rollover northeast of Spokane.  It happened around 4:30 a.m. Thursday on Day Mt. Spokane Road near the Dietz Christmas Tree Farm.

The driver, said to be conscious and alert, was evacuated via Medstar. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening but he was complaining of injuries to both arms.
