An ambulance and a paramedic area support officer attended the scene.
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The car had left the road and collided with a telegraph pole before coming to rest on the drivers’ side. When ambulance crews arrived, they found the driver had managed to get out of the car despite it being on its side.
“The driver, a man believed to be in his 20s, was assessed by crews and they remarkably found he’d escaped with just a cut to his arm.”
