    A driver was pulled from this overturned car after it flipped Saturday morning, police said.

    A car flipped in a crash on City Avenue at the Philadelphia-Lower Merion border, and police have shut down the road in both directions.

    The crash happened just before 7 a.m. Saturday near Haverford Avenue. A person was pulled from the car, which came to a rest on its roof near 76th Street.

    The vehicle slammed into a lamp post and ended up on the sidewalk on the Lower Merion side of City Avenue.

    SEPTA buses and the rest of the weekend morning traffic were being detoured around the crash. Traffic already was building and avoiding the area was recommended in the short term.
