The Jeep then struck a wooden sign post with its front causing minor damage to the vehicle.

It then continued to travel south along the shoulder of the roadway and struck two trees with its passenger side and sheared off another tree. The vehicle continued to travel south and came to a final rest facing west approximately 30 feet off the southbound lanes of travel, according to police.

Kersey was using a seat belt and suffered suspected minor injuries.

He was charged with a traffic violation.
