Multiple people were in the vehicle, but fortunately, none were seriously hurt. BCSO investigators say excessive speed and a lack of attention to the driver caused them to lose control and slam the large SUV on its side.

Traffic was blocked in the area for several hours, but eventually, the vehicle was removed. No word if any citations were issued in connection with the crash.
