According to Lt. Scott Nix, a caller said a car on Boston Post Road was either in an accident or spun off the road just before 4 a.m.
Responding officers discovered a car sideways, partially blocking the westbound lane of Boston Post Road and partially off the road.
The operator claimed he was out of gas, Nix said.
