Authorities are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in a rollover crash in southern Shawnee County Sunday night.
33-year old Eric Willard of Topeka was northbound on Burlingame around 10:00 p.m., when he over-corrected after leaving the roadway on the east side. His car spun through the roadway, entered the west ditch, eventually crashing into large landscaping rocks at the edge of a driveway near the 7800 block of SW Burlingame Rd.
Deputies say Willard's blue Dodge Stratus was found resting on the driver’s side with him trapped in the vehicle. Willard had to be extricated by first responders. He was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Authorities say Willard was wearing his seat belt at the time of the collision.
Alcohol containers were found near the vehicle, but authorities don't yet know if alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash.
No citations were issued on the scene, but the accident is still under investigation.
