The accident occurred just after 1 p.m. on Highway 369 near the Lower Creighton Road intersection, said Tim Cavender, fire services spokesperson.
“When emergency service personnel arrived on scene, they found a Lincoln-Mercury automobile had left the highway and landed on its side,” Cavender said in a release.
The driver of the vehicle, a 77-year-old man, was entrapped and had to be extricated, he said.
He had lacerations to his hand and forearm, but was complaining of pain throughout his body, Cavender said.
The patient was in stable condition and was taken by ambulance to North Fulton Hospital, he said.
No other injuries were reported. Both lanes of the highway were blocked until the injured left the scene, according to Cavender.
The cause of the accident is being investigated by the Georgia State Patrol.
