LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a driver escaped with minor injuries after a crash that left the driver’s SUV wedged between a wall and a power box.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Lt. Bill Steinmetz says the crash occurred early Thursday when the driver lost control of the car, driving it onto a sidewalk and hitting a tree, which flipped the vehicle.

KVVU-TV reports no pedestrians or other cars were involved and the SUV driver had no passengers.

Steinmetz says the driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
