A 37-year-old Weymouth man is facing drunk driving charges after allegedly crashing his car into a utility pole outside Weymouth Landing in Braintree.

According to Braintree police, shortly before 11 p.m. on Sunday, officers arrived on the scene of a reported car accident at the landing, finding a car wedged between a light pole and a wrought iron fence.

The man, who did suffer any serious injuries, could not exit the vehicle because the doors were pinned in by the pole and the fence.

The fire department had to extract the man from the car, police said.

Officers made several observations of possible intoxication, and the man was transported to South Shore Hospital.

Police will be seeking complaints against the man, whose name has not been released, as he has not yet been charged. He will be charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, and failure to keep within marked lanes.
