CHERRY HILL — The driver of a car involved in a wreck on Route 38 managed to get out of the mangled vehicle on their own after it flipped early Saturday morning.
Cherry Hill fire companies responded to the single-vehicle crash on Route 38 westbound just in front of fire station #5 around 12:42 a.m. Saturday morning, Chief Fire Marshal Joseph Cornforth said.
A car had run off the road and hit a utility pole, Cherry Hill police Lt. Thomas Leone said. The vehicle flipped and landed on its roof.
Photos of the car showed significant damage to its front end, the front windshield, and the top of the cabin. It appeared part of the roof had been caved in.
When first responders arrived at the scene, they found the driver standing next to the vehicle; they had climbed out on their own.
Despite the seriousness of the wreck, the driver was uninjured. There were no passengers in the car.
The driver, who has not been identified, was then arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, Leon said.
It's unclear how fast the vehicle was traveling at the time of the crash.
Police said on social media that Route 38 westbound was closed between Church Road and Woods Road as the scene was cleaned up. A tow company came, set the vehicle back on its wheels, and towed it away.
