Car Flips Off Westwood Road onto Resident's Lawn
The man's life may have been saved by a custom roll bar he installed in the car, cops said.
A custom roll bar likely saved the life of a man who flipped his car off the road, according to Westwood Police Chief Frank Regino.
The man was driving northbound on Forest Avenue at about 12:30 p.m. Thursday — and was probably speeding — when he hit a curb and flipped, according to Regino.
Neighbors said they found the man crawling out the back window of the partially crushed vehicle. He suffered no serious injuries.
The driver had "put quite a bit of money" into customizing the car, and a roll bar he installed probably saved his life, Regino said.
The driver was not initially given any citations, but an investigation was still ongoing, according to Regino.
Westwood Police, Hillsdale EMTs and the Westwood Fire Department responded to the scene.
