According to Cascais 24 Horas, the driver fled before the arrival of the Fire Department and the Public Security Police (PSP).

Witnesses told authorities that the driver was seen driving moments before at "high speed" along Avenida D. Pedro I, and then failed to make the curve in the road, ending up with the car mounting a small wall before flipping over.

The car remained at the location for several hours and then was removed in the middle of the day on Sunday.

A PSP source confirmed the incident to Notícias ao Minuto, adding that despite the driver fleeing the scene, they had now been identified.
