An overnight wreck on a ramp getting onto I-95 northbound from I-16 westbound sent one to the hospital.
Southside Fire/EMS and Pooler police responded to the scene around 2:30 a.m. Thursday and say they believe the male driver somehow lost control of his vehicle, ran off the ramp, hit a tree and spun around, ending up in the woods.
The driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. No other vehicles were involved.
The ramp had to be shut down for a while overnight but has since reopened and should not cause delays to the morning commute. Officials say that because it happened in the early morning hours, no traffic was affected.
