A man sustained injuries Saturday night after he crashed his vehicle on Interstate 40 eastbound.

Gakunga Mburu, 32, ran off the road just east of Aviation Parkway, according to Highway Patrol officials. His vehicle overturned, and he was taken to WakeMed.

Authorities said they think Mburu might have broken his neck.

Mburu was charged with driving on a revoked license, driving while impaired, careless and reckless driving and not wearing a seatbelt.

Troopers said the driving while impaired charge deals with a substance rather than alcohol.

Troopers said Mburu claimed there was another vehicle that caused him to run off the road.
