The incident occurred at approximately 11:30PM on February 15, 2024 along Shore Road near its intersection with North Bar Avenue. Witnesses reported the vehicle, a 2005 Honda Accord, veered off the east shoulder of the roadway and collided with multiple trees before overturning in the wooded area (SCPD, 2024).

The 21-year-old male driver, sole occupant, was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by responding fire departments. He was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
