Hamilton SES unit controller Bruce Farquharson said volunteers worked quickly to extricate a man from his vehicle after it rolled in Byaduk this morning.
He said the Jeep station wagon landed on its roof after rolling on the Hamilton-Port Fairy Road about 3am.
The man aged in his 60s was trapped in the vehicle for more than two hours until he was located by another motorist.
Mr Farquharson said the man was carefully extricated from the vehicle and transferred into an ambulance.
“We didn’t have to cut open the car, the gentleman was able to be removed from the rear door of the vehicle,” he said.
“Under the guidance of paramedics we made sure he was protected from any injuries and we cut away parts of the seat to safely get him out.
"It was a quick and fairly simple rescue.”
A man was trapped in his vehicle for more than two hours after it rolled in Byaduk this morning.
Hamilton police Sergeant Rex Habel said the vehicle was travelling south on Hamilton-Port Fairy Road when it rolled about 3am.
“A male driver was trapped for several hours until being located by another motorist about 5.30am,” he said.
“SES and CFA attended and the male has been released from the vehicle and taken to hospital.”
Sergeant Habel said fatigue was a possible factor in the crash.
A spokeswoman for Ambulance Victoria said a man aged in his 60s was transported by road ambulance to Hamilton Base Hospital with a suspected spinal injury.
The man is in a stable condition.
