Two men were uninjured after their car left the road and crashing into the woods backwards.

Orange Police Officer M. Bernard responded to a report of a one-vehicle crash with entrapment at 3:52 a.m. Sunday in the 1700 block of South Lutcher Drive in Orange.

Upon arrival on scene, first responders found two male victims inside of a Buick Century trapped by downed trees from the crash.

Fire fighters had to extricate both men from the vehicle. Both men refused medical treatment on scene.

According to a relative of the driver, he was lucky that this accident was non-fatal because of the damaged caused. This was the driver’s second major accident. He became paralyzed from the previous accident.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation by the Orange Police Department.

The vehicle is a total lost.

Orange Police Officer Marcus Bernard is the initial investigating officer.
