A rollover accident involving an off-road vehicle briefly disrupted the morning commute Monday.
Lt. Stephen Judd with the Maricopa Police Department said a side-by-side recreation vehicle rolled onto its side on Porter Road after making an illegal left turn from Sequoia Pathway Academy.
A traffic sign prohibits left hand turns from the school onto Porter.
“(The off road vehicle) slammed on its brakes and turned over on its side,” Judd said. “There was actually no collision; no other vehicles were hit. It just lost control and turned over.”
Judd said the male driver of the vehicle did not sustain injuries and police crews cleared the roadway quickly.
