SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police responding to an early morning car crash in Springfield found the vehicle on its roof, a 200-yard long debris field, and a wheel assembly ripped off and resting 20 feet away from the wreck— but they didn’t find a driver.
Police found the flipped car in the city’s Indian Orchard neighborhood just after midnight Friday.
Officers tell The Republican (http://bit.ly/GCrjub ) newspaper they think the car was speeding when the driver lost control, and it rolled several times, ripping out two road signs and a fire hydrant and tearing up pavement and the lawn of a commercial building.
A search of the area with the help of a police dog found no bodies.
Police have contacted the registered owner of the vehicle.
