A car that flipped onto its side Saturday afternoon at Imperial and Baker avenues trapped the driver inside, but only minor injuries were reported, according to firefighters.

The single-car accident took place about 4:30 p.m., firefighters said. The Fire Department dispatched to the scene Engines 2, 4, Rescue 3 and Car 3, with a total of 11 personnel.

The Lexus was on its side when firefighters arrived on the scene, and the driver was trapped. Personnel from Rescue 3 stabilized the car so that it would not tip over, and the unidentified driver was checked for injuries. The driver was removed from the vehicle and treated at the scene for what were described as minor injuries, according to firefighters.

The driver was transported by Westport Emergency Medical Service personnel to the hospital for additional treatment.
