The car was then dragged "a good distance." The roof was crushed.
Fire officials say the motorist climbed out of the driver's side door.
The 61-year-old driver was Ricki Artruc, of Southbridge. He tells NBC Boston he's "just glad to be alive."
The Uxbridge Fire Department posted on Facebook that Artruc was taken to the hospital and is recovering from minor injuries.
