OXFORD — A Portland man cut his arm when his vehicle flipped onto its side in the Oxford Casino driveway next to Route 26 on Tuesday, police said.

According to Oxford police officer Bryce Mason, Michael Colerick, 70, was leaving the parking lot around 4:30 p.m. when he reached for a pair of glasses, jerked the steering wheel sharply and the front passenger’s side tire rode up onto the concrete base of a street lamp. Momentum carried the front corner of the Chevrolet SUV off the ground and it rolled onto the driver’s side, Mason said.

Colerick suffered lacerations to his arm and was able to get out of the vehicle, Mason said. The SUV was towed from the scene.
