Three males escaped with non-life threatening injuries when their westbound car overturned in the 4400 block of Pruden Boulevard on Saturday, according to city of Suffolk spokeswoman Diana Klink.

Dispatchers received a call at 8:52 a.m. about a single-vehicle accident involving a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, Klink stated. A preliminary investigation found the car left the road, glanced a power pole and ended up on its roof in a ditch.

The three males did not require medical transport, but Suffolk Fire and Rescue provided emergency medical assessment.
