San Antonio police think speed may have led a man to flip his pickup in southwest Bexar County.
Police say the man was trying to pass an 18 wheeler on I-35 near Rife lane in Von Ormy.
The man ran out of shoulder, hit the guardrail and flipped his pickup several times scattering debris all over the road.
Firefighters cut him out the truck and he was flown to a hospital.
He is expected to be okay.
