Police say the Ford Mustang GT flipped when the driver jerked the wheel to dodge a Chevrolet truck, coming to rest in front of the Nic's Pic Kwik at the corner of 401 and Hasty Road around 2 p.m.
The Mustang was laying on its roof as emergency crews controlled traffic. The roof over the passenger side had collapsed to the to the bottom of the window.
Gas was leaking out of the vehicle onto the highway while a tow truck tried to right the vehicle to remove it from the scene.
The driver of the vehicle was walking about and did not appear to be harmed.
Many on the scene seemed surprised the driver was uninjured.
One onlooker commented: "He's not lucky, he's blessed."
The truck had a dent in its left-rear corner and part of the bumper was hanging off.
According to Sgt. Jason Butler, LPD, the Mustang was approaching the truck from the rear as the truck slowed to turn into a driveway.
The driver of the Mustang was looking away and did not notice the truck was slowing in time to brake. He jerked the wheel of the car to avoid the truck, turning the Mustang on its side, according to Butler.
The car still hit the Chevrolet truck, then skidded 140 feet and coming to a rest on the roof of the car.
Butler said both the airbags deployed and the driver appeared to be wearing his seat belt. The officer said that, had the driver not been wearing his seat belt, he likely would have been launched from the car.
A report on the incident had not been released at press time.
