It happened around 1 a.m. near Eastern Avenue and Russell Road. Police said the driver was heading east on Russell when he lost control, hit a rock, a pole and then went airborne, landing on top of an electrical box.

The man did not have to be transported to the hospital but was a little banged up from the crash.
