Department of Public Safety troopers have identified the victim of a roll-over accident Sunday night in Lufkin.

Troopers say the victim, 45-year old Dwight Hooks of Beaumont, was involved in an accident that occurred off F-M 58, just past F-M 2108.  Troopers say Hooks swerved to miss a deer on the road, ran off the road, flipped his car and hit a tree.  He was trapped for a few minutes, but managed to get out before help arrived.

Hooks was taken to a local hospital last night where he was treated and released.
