A 22-year-old man escaped serious injury after rolling his vehicle Monday afternoon on a frontage road in Kimball Junction.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call regarding the crash at around 1:08 p.m. The driver, from Logan, was traveling north on Highland Drive.

The driver told deputies he saw a deer, which caused him to drift over to the opposite shoulder, according to Lt. Andrew Wright. Wright said the driver lost control of his vehicle, overcorrected and hit a berm, causing the vehicle to become airborne.

The vehicle then hit a cement pillar before rolling onto its roof in front of a driveway. Broken glass and debris surrounded the vehicle.

An ambulance and a firetruck responded to the scene, along with deputies from the Sheriff’s Office. The driver did not sustain any injuries and was seen walking around the vehicle moments after the crash.

Wright said he was cited for failure to operate in a single lane and driving too fast for conditions.
