Car goes sideways east of High Point, no injuries

12:54 AM: Sylvan Way is blocked east of High Point while police investigate a car-on-its-side crash. Just one vehicle, and nobody had to go to the hospital, police told us at the scene; it was originally dispatched as a “heavy rescue,” but that was pulled back quickly.

1:19 AM UPDATE: Westbound Sylvan Way is open again, according to scanner traffic.

    Been out of town for two weeks, but have they fixed all the light poles that have been burned out since the last one? It was so dark by the cemetery you almost had to use high beams when I left just before Memorial Day weekend.

    No they have not because a stretch of them never came back on after a roll over took out a light pole. Who do we contact to get that fixed ?

    You speed, you rollover, you bump your head, you forget your name & where you live, you become homeless & hop trains to Mississippi where you die from eating raw crawfish.

    Don’t speed.

    Contact City Light regarding street lights that are out.

    I’m one of the residents in Sylvan Ridge and was the first one to get to the driver after he crawled out of his sunroof. He was okay, aside from being shaken and scraped up on his arms, hands and legs. There was definitely a faint smell of alcohol on him. He explained the he was doing 35 going around the turn (right before Home Depot if you’re going downhill) and his car “over steered” and he lost control. Sadly, he wasn’t the owner of the car. His friend and owner of the car, showed up a few minutes later, after the driver received his phone out of the car. It was kind of a terrifying sight to see, but I’m glad the driver is alive.

    35? Things that make you go, Hmmmmmm.

    That stretch of road has a very narrow shoulder that drops right into a deep, natural gulley (dirt and gravel–seriously eroded). Just spit-balling here, but if our (perhaps) intoxicated driver let his wheels dip into that ditch and over-corrected…

    Glad he’s okay.

    “Faint smell of alcohol” pretty much says it right there. “Friends don’t let friends drive YOUR car drunk”.

Sorry, comment time is over.
