    Oceanside Police arrived at the crash scene around 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Oceanside Boulevard and Camelot Drive.

    There, officers found a car overturned but no one inside.

    Witnesses told police that a male driver lost control, hit a tree and rolled his car five or six times

    When they tried to help the bloodied driver, witnesses say he refused and limped away. Police tracked down the man later and took him to the hospital. 

    Police are still investigating the incident. It's unclear what caused the crash or if the driver will face any charges.
