Auburn man was hospitalized early Tuesday after traffic accident

A 40-year-old Auburn man was hospitalized early Tuesday after his car veered off a county road as he was adjusting his cruise control and sailed over a pair of driveways before it came to rest in a yard. The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department say their officers and area medics were called just before 10 a.m. Tuesday to a stretch of State Road 101 north of County Road 68 on a report of a crash there. Investigators say that David E. Read was driving southbound on 1 when he tried to adjust his cruise control. Reports indicate that Read drifted off the roadway and hit a mailbox then a culvert. The impact sent the vehicle into the air and over a driveway. Authorities say that the vehicle continued on and sailed over a second driveway and came to rest in a yard. Read was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital for treatment.
