Roseville police suspect DUI in early morning vehicle rollover

Roseville police continue to investigate a single vehicle rollover on southbound Fiddyment Road that occurred early Friday morning.

The incident, south of Pleasant Grove Boulevard, was reported at 1:24 a.m. Authorities said a 2003 Infiniti sedan was driving at "a high rate of speed" southbound on Fiddyment Road when the driver lost control and rolled the vehicle into a field. The vehicle ignited a small grass fire, but the flames were quickly extinguished by emergency personnel.

Police said the 34-year-old male driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. The driver was taken to Sutter Roseville Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Authorities suspect the driver might have been under the influence of alcohol.

Southbound lanes of Fiddyment Road will remain closed for the next few hours, while authorities investigate the scene.
