A 19-year-old man was injured in a solo vehicle crash on San Marin Drive at about 12:30 p.m. Friday in Novato, according to Novato Fire Protection District Division Chief Mark Heine.
The driver of a green 1998 BMW was headed west and lost control of the vehicle, which was sent up a hillside and rolled over several times before landing upright.
The driver was taken to Marin General Hospital due to the nature of the collision, Heine said. He suffered from lacerations and bruises, but showed no signs of significant trauma. It appeared the driver was restrained by a seat belt, Heine said.
The San Marin Drive was closed for roughly 45 minutes while officials removed the damaged BMW. The roof of the vehicle was caved in.
Witnesses told fire officials that the driver was traveling at a high rate of speed before the crash, but the Novato Police Department said the investigation is ongoing.
