WARREN — A Spruce Head man escaped injury Monday when he lost control of his vehicle on Route 90, left the roadway and struck several small trees.
John Grossbaum, 63, was uninjured in the 2:15 p.m. crash that demolished his 1998 Chrysler van, Knox County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Todd Butler said Tuesday.
The report filed by Deputy Justin Twitchell indicated that driver inattention was a contributing factor in the accident, which caused about $25,000 damage to the vehicle.
Grossbaum was traveling south on Route 90 when his vehicle drifted to the left and off the road, where it hit a small stand of trees. There were no passengers in his vehicle.
