A 31-year-old suffered serious injuries when he was ejected 70 feet from a 1996 Toyota Sports Utility Vehicle Monday morning.

Michael Edward Connor, a resident of Mill Valley, Calif., was driving westbound on Interstate 80 about 9:30 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road and was shot out of the vehicle.

The Toyota overturned near Mogul, Calif., on the north side of the road between Truckee and Reno.

Nevada Highway Patrol Investigators reportedly found controlled substances at the scene. Charges are pending results from a chemical test.
