The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office responded to the crash at about 9:37 p.m. Saturday on County Road 4, near Long Lake Lane SW in Lake Mary Township, south of Alexandria. A 911 caller heard the crash and saw sparks from his property across a field.

When officers arrived, a car had overturned in the driving lanes of County Road 4. The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was taken to Douglas County Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, treated and released.

Authorities say alcohol is suspected to be a factor in the crash.
