A single vehicle crash ended with a car on its top, in the backyard of a South Salina home Friday evening. The crash happened on Belmont Boulevard near Stewart Elementary School, between Kensington and Wesley Streets .

Salina Police Office James Bogan told KSAL News at the scene that the crash happened when the driver of a white Honda Civic lost control.

Bogan says that the car was heading east on Belmont, from Magnolia towards Ohio Street. The driver was attempting to pass another car, and going at a high rate of speed around a curve, when he lost control.

The Honda crossed the median, both westbound lanes of Belmont, jumped a curve, and rolled. It ended on its top, in a backyard. Bogan says it appears the car rolled several times.

The driver, whose name was not immediately available at the scene, was transported by EMS to Salina Regional Heath Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash happened just before 7:00 Friday evening.

Bogan adds that speed played a factor in the crash the crash, and there is a good possibility that the driver will receive some citations.

Doug Clemens, actually, no. This incident was a cause of Arnold lady going 28 in a 40 mph zone. The driver, who is one of my closest friends, abides by laws, does amazingly in school, and does not do do drugs. He’s a straight A students and wouldnt do something like that. Ok nt always make assumptions. Hes such angers kid.

Well coming from the kid who was in the crash, no I wasn’t on drugs or my phone. So before you come making fucking assumptions get the facts straight so you don’t look like a jackass. Who can’t even show who the fuck you are in the profile picture like a little bitch.
