CORSICA  - Alcohol was a factor in a vehicle rollover involving one person on Tuesday evening east of Corsica.

At approximately 7:45 p.m. Tuesday, a male was driving a utility pickup truck too close to the edge of the road at the intersection of 274th Street and 395th Avenue near Corsica, officials said. The vehicle rolled into a steep ditch and landed on its roof. According to Douglas County Deputy Dustin Palmquist, alcohol was a factor.

The driver was not wearing a seat belt. The driver’s name and information is not being released at this time, according to Palmquist.

He was uninjured and left the scene but was located by law enforcement as he attempted to walk into a field. Palmquist said the report is still being written and the state’s attorney will then review the case.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Corsica Fire Department, Douglas County Ambulance Services, Douglas County Emergency Management and Charles Mix County Emergency Management were the responding agencies.
