Wintry mix causes car to roll

DANVERS — A motorist was unhurt after the red sedan he was driving rolled onto its side by Sunnyside Bowladrome at 176 Water St. yesterday afternoon, police Capt. Pat Ambrose said.

According to police, the car was heading into town on Route 35 from the Peabody direction at 1:24 p.m. when it hit some ice and slush near the bowling alley. The car careened into a snow bank and landed on its driver’s side.

“It didn’t roll over,” Ambrose said. “It fell onto the driver’s side.”

Ambrose said the driver, the lone occupant in the vehicle, was able to free himself as police, Lyons Ambulance and firefighters from Danvers Engine 3 arrived.

Danvers Patrolman John Melto was the investigating officer.
