MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – A 21-year-old Marshfield man was taken by ambulance to Marshfield Medical Center after a rollover accident over the weekend.
The man was traveling northbound on North Peach Avenue near the intersection of East Franklin Street at around 6:40 a.m. when he struck a curb and mailbox. The road curved and the man failed to turn.
According to the police report, the vehicle traveled into a yard on Peach Ave. where it caused damage and proceeded to travel into a second yard. As it went through the second yard, the vehicle struck a tree, and caused damage to the yard, a flower bed and some flower ornaments.
The car went through two more yards on Peach Ave. hitting multiple trees and doing yard damage in the process before coming to rest. The vehicle appeared to have rolled multiple times according to the report.
In the police report, an officer said the parts and glass was scattered at the scene.
“There was a debris field of glass and other vehicle parts that went for approximately half a city block,” the report said.
The vehicle’s speed was unknown but according to the report, it had to have been a higher rate than the posted speed limit of 25 MPH due to the damage and distance the vehicle had to travel before coming to a stop.
The man was found unconscious and ejected from the vehicle.
The man was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and will ultimately be charged with 2nd offense OWI, reckless driving, operating while revoked, and possession of open intoxicants in a motor vehicle.
The man was transported to Marshfield Medical Center with suspected serious injuries.
