A 65-year-old motorist died after his car rolled through a Stillwater cul-de-sac and over bluffs and crashed, authorities said.

The wreck occurred about noon Monday near E. Hazel and N. 2nd streets, police said.

The vehicle was heading north on 2nd, went through the cul-de-sac, cleared the bluffs and ended up in the woods near the Browns Creek State Trail, according to police.

Three people walking on the trail alerted police to the crash, authorities said.

The identity of the driver, who is from Stillwater, was being withheld pending notification of family.
