Firefighters cut the roof off a vehicle to free the driver trapped inside after it flipped over in Finksburg on Sunday.

A Ford Mustang driven by a 41-year-old Finksburg man went off the roadway for unknown reasons and hit several large rocks, causing the vehicle to flip in the 3500 block of Niner Road just before 1 a.m., according to Tim Brown, public information officer for Carroll County Sheriff’s Office. The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle, Brown said.

Gamber and Sykesville firefighters responded and cut the roof off the vehicle to free the driver, who was trapped when the vehicle landed on the driver’s-side door, according to Clay Myers, public information officer for the Gamber fire company. The crash occurred about one mile from the Gamber fire house.

It took firefighters about 15 minutes to get the man out of the vehicle, according to Myers. The man was taken to Carroll Hospital, but Myers did not know the extent of his injuries or why the vehicle struck the rocks.
