Teen rolls Cherokee

A 17-year-old boy escaped with minor injuries after his SUV rolled and landed in a creek bed on Brittany Way Tuesday morning.

At 7:10 a.m. the driver, late for school, was traveling eastbound west of Morman Island Road in El Dorado Hills at approximately 50 mph in a 25 mph zone when he lost control of his red 2003 Jeep Cherokee and went off the road’s south side, according to a press release issued by the California Highway Patrol. The morning’s wet weather left the roadway slick.

“The Jeep Cherokee rolled several times and landed on its roof in a creek bed.  The driver was wearing his safety belt and sustained minor injuries as a result of this collision,” the release states.

CHP officers remind everyone to drive cautiously in inclement weather and urge them to take a little more time to reach their destinations. “Be mindful of the conditions you are driving in or you might not get to your destination at all.”
