Car Flips, Lands In Front Yard

A car flipped on its side in a Chippewa Falls neighborhood after it drove on the sidewalk and landed in a front yard.

The rollover crash happened around 7pm Tuesday night. Chippewa Falls Police say the man driving jumped a curb on Columbia Street at Superior, drove on the sidewalk for a block and it flipped onto its side in the front yard of a home on Albert. The crash took out a couple of street signs, but amazingly the car did not hit anyone on the sidewalk, didn't hit the trees or the house.

Police say the driver was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. Officers say a medical condition may have played a role in the crash.
