Around 11:30 a.m., just as Monday’s eclipse was reaching its maximum darkness, a thirty-year-old Butte man rolled his vehicle on Granite Street in what police believe was a medical-emergency-related accident.

George Skuletich, undersheriff for Butte-Silver Bow, said witnesses told police the man was driving along Granite Street when his vehicle accelerated, crossed the street and hit a fence and utility pole before rolling and landing in an alley east of the Lexington Gardens parking lot.

The man was transported to St. James Healthcare, said Skuletich, who added that he does not believe the man’s injuries were life-threatening.

Based on witness accounts, Skuletich said, police believe the accident may have resulted from a medical emergency.

Police continue to investigate the accident and haven’t yet determined an exact cause, the undersheriff said.
