SEAL ROCK — A motorist involved in a single vehicle rollover around 10 a.m. Wednesday morning walked away unharmed.

The motorist’s Honda Civic ended up upside down in a ditch near milepost 154.5 along Highway 101 south of Seal Rock. Oregon State Police Trooper David Peterson said that the man's car went off the road for “an unknown reason.”

“He had medical problems but I don’t think the medical problems had anything to do with it,” Peterson said.

The car had Washington plates, but the motorist had recently moved to Oregon, according to Peterson. The man was visiting the central Oregon coast.

Traffic was restricted to a single lane until around 11 a.m.

A semitruck driver appeared to have driven off the road at around the same time a few miles north up the highway.
