ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – Fiddyment Road was closed in Roseville Friday because of a major accident early in the morning.

The driver of the car is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At around 1:30 a.m. Friday, the driver was heading southbound on Fiddyment Road approaching Baseline Road when he lost control of the car, causing it to leave the road and roll into a nearby field, sparking a grass fire, say Roseville police.

Firefighters put the fire out and emergency crews took the driver, an unidentified 34-year-old man, to Sutter Roseville Medical Center, where he is on life support.

Police say the driver was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the car.

“That’s a very bad combination of elements — when a person is driving, in this incident, it resulted in a major injury collision.”

Police are investigating the possibility of DUI.
