The end result of a car vs 18-wheeler on the Boston Post Road near Cumberland Farms  can be seen in this photo sent in by an Orange Live reader.

According to reports, this car pulled out of Cumberland Farms into the path of a passing tractor trailer truck just after 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning.

The crash sent the car careening into a neighboring parking lot where it landed on its roof.

No extrication was needed, as the driver was able to get out of the wreck on his own. He was transported to a hospital for treatment.
