A man driving on Middlefield Road is unharmed after flipping his vehicle over in a solo crash Sunday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.
Around 1:30 p.m., bystanders reported hearing a loud crash. Directly in front of Best Price Furniture, between 1st and 2nd avenues on Middlefield Road, witnesses said they saw a vehicle flipped on its back, tires up. When this reporter drove by, the car was in the same position.
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office was the first law enforcement on the scene after being alerted by a witness.
A CHP officer told the Pulse the man was being evaluated but did not require hospitalization. He had removed himself from the vehicle and was walking on his own. The officer said that it appeared as though the car may have hit the traffic cones that blocked off the roadwork, causing his car to flip up and then over.
A portion of Middlefield Road was closed as law enforcement cleared the crash scene.
