A man reaching for his cellphone was fortunate to walk away after his car flipped on the Crosstown Expressway.

According to police, the man was driving south on Crosstown when he ran into a barrier near the Holly Road exit, as he was reaching for his cellphone. The impact sent his car into the air before it landed upside down on the highway.

Fortunately, the man was wearing his seatbelt and was not transported to the hospital.

Police say he will be ticketed for failure to maintain a single lane.
