Authorities said that as the car briefly traveled westward in a drainage ditch along the south side of Pepperbox Road before hitting a driveway culvert. The impact catapulted the vehicle, causing it to overturn several times before coming to rest, upright, in the intersection of Pepperbox and Brittingham Roads.
