COLUMBIA, Mo. - Columbia firefighters had to perform an extrication after a driver crashed through two fences, causing the vehicle to roll over and land on its side Saturday.

Crews responded to the back of a neighborhood near the intersection of Blue Ridge and Providence roads around 11 a.m. for reports of a crash.

Firefighters said one vehicle was involved with only one occupant. The driver was transported to a local hospital.

The driver crashed into a small tree, a light pole and two fences before the vehicle rolled and landed on its side in the back of someone’s yard.
