Woman uninjured after car flips, slides

A driver walked away uninjured after her car flipped on its roof and slid across Coast Highway on Sunday evening.

At 9:09 p.m., police responded to a cut and rescue from a crushed vehicle in the 31000 block of South Coast Highway, according to Sgt. Louise Callus.

The woman told police that her vehicle suddenly pulled to the right while she was driving, and it hit the curb. She overcompensated and turned the steering wheel away. The vehicle then flipped over and glided 50 feet before coming to a stop in the middle of the highway.

Callus said she credits the driver's seatbelt for saving the woman's life.

The driver was not impaired, and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
