A 32-year-old Clinton man was involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash on Monday morning on Bob Galbreath Road in Clinton.
Julian Mozee-Rose was driving north near Wilkinson Road at around 9 a.m. when his 2004 Dodge Stratus slid across the road and onto an embankment, which caused his vehicle to roll over. Mozee-Rose was uninjured, but the crash resulted in a total loss to his vehicle.
Deputy Shawn Warwick of the Island County Sheriff’s Office thought “excessive speed” while Mozee-Rose was rounding the corner was probably a contributing factor in the crash. The pavement was also wet from rainfall, he said.
South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Jon Beck said traffic was reduced to a single lane following the crash and was closed completely for about 20 minutes while a tow truck from Shorty’s Towing secured the vehicle for transportation.
“He just had to flip it over,” Beck said.
