Carmel Cops: 2 Teens Involved in Rollover on Drewville Road

There were no signs of alcohol or drugs, according to officials.

Police say the driver in a one-car crash on Drewville Road in Carmel Wednesday afternoon lost control because he was speeding.

It occurred around 2:45 p.m. as the driver, a teenage boy from Lake Carmel, was heading east in a 2006 Ford Focus. Officials at the Carmel Police Department say he was driving too fast, lost control and hit an embankment, which caused the car to roll.

Another teen boy was also in the car. Neither sustained serious injuries, but the Mahopac Volunteer Fire Department transported the passenger to Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel as a precaution, according to police.

Authorities said there was no sign of alcohol or drugs, and no charges were lodged. The vehicle was towed.

I saw a flipped over car on Doansburg Road last night at about 6:10pm. Any info on that?

Thanks for sharing, Katie! Doansburg in Southeast or Patterson?

Southeast, not too far from Maplewood Drive.

I heard about that as well...

Thank you both for letting me know. I really appreciate it. So far, I've checked with State Police and the Brewster Fire Department. Neither agencies responded to the accident (as described above) but I'll continue to look into it!
