Somehow, the driver of an Infiniti involved in a violent rollover was able to walk away, despite the car being completely totaled.

Few details are presently known. Orland firefighters were dispatched to the scene at about 10:23 Monday morning.

Initially, the call was said to be a vehicle versus trailer collision. This was soon corrected to a single-vehicle rollover accident.

The Infiniti was traveling east on County Road 19, just east of County Road 200, when the accident occurred. According to the CHP’s traffic incident page, the driver may have been speeding.

The driver was reportedly able to exit the Infiniti by himself. It is not known if he was wearing his seatbelts at the time of the accident, but the car’s airbags deployed.

The driver was transported by ground ambulance for medical aid.
