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 in his 2006 Mercedes Benz 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.

The vehicle eventually came to rest in a yard, the report said.

Read complained of back pain and was taken to a Fort Wayne hospital for treatment.

Damages to Read's vehicle are estimated at $5,000.00.

The Dekalb County's Sheriff's Department was assisted by the Indiana State Police, DeKalb EMS, and South East Fire Rescue.
