It was a difficult extrication, taking nearly 30 minutes for Indianapolis Fire crews to free a driver from his mangled car after an accident.

It happened  in front of Daniel O'Riley Funeral Home, 6107 S. East Street, on the south side.  That is near US 31 and Edgewood Avenue. 

Officials say only one car was involved in the accident.

Investigators say the black Honda was traveling northbound on East Street early Sunday morning when it went off the road and flipped over on its top.

A passerby stopped at a gas station up the road, and flagged down a police officer to report the accident.

The driver is in serious condition at Methodist Hospital.
