MENTONE – A Mentone area resident provided a photo of a car that went off the road and apparently flipped twice early Sunday morning.
Mentone resident Joe Secrist said he was awoken at about 3 a.m. Sunday after the driver knocked on his door.
The driver was traveling north on CR 1000W near CR 600S south of Mentone when he apparently crossed the center line and hit a guardrail that is part of a bridge that spans Yellow Creek, Secrist said.
Secrist said the vehicle then hit a utility pole and flipped over at least twice before coming to rest upright, Sechrist said.
The car ended up west of the road and in Secrist’s property, but far from his house.
The man did not appear to suffer any serious injuries, he said.
