Firefighters cut roof of BMW to free trapped driver

An 18-year-old driver was extricated from a BMW after the vehicle rolled on its side in the 7100 block of Meeker Road in Butler Twp. on Monday afternoon.

The unidentified driver reportedly lost control of the car, and it rolled into a wooded area along the road, trapping the teen, officials said. Firefighters used the the Jaws of Life to cut the roof of the car to free him.

He was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries, officials said, noting that the driver will likely be charged with failure to control.
