Street Sweeper Flips in Perris

No one hurt in street sweeper accident

Have you ever wondered if the "Zamboni of the street" could actually flip over? And how fast would one (or could one) go in order to cause it to flip?  Well, we now have the answers to this age-old question thanks to a one Perris driver.

A street sweeper, possibly driven by a drunken driver, flipped over Sunday in Perris, said a sheriff's sergeant.

The crash was reported about 10:39 a.m. on Avalon Parkway and the Ramona Expressway, near the Lake Perris Fairgrounds, according to Sgt. Joe Borja of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Borja said the man driving the street sweeper escaped from the overturned vehicle and was not injured.

The man may have been under the influence of alcohol, according to reports from deputies at the scene.

Fortunately, no one was hurt, and the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
