POLICE say a drunk driver is lucky to be alive after he rolled his car.
The man in his late 40s was driving on the Mt Clay Road in Heywood when he lost control of his car on a left hand sweeping bend.
First constable Daniel Skelly said it appeared the car, which didn't belong to the man, had rolled three or four times before landing on its roof in nearby bushland.
The accident happened at about 4.45pm on Monday and the driver, from Tyrendarra, was able to free himself via a car window.
First constable Skelly said a passerby noticed a small fire and pulled over.
The passerby drove the man to Heywood Police Station where he was met by Portland Police.
The driver said he didn't have any injuries and refused medical treatment.
First constable Skelly said the man had a blood alcohol reading of .118.

"It's surprising he's still alive," he said.
"Pretty much every bit of panel of the car was crushed. He hasn't held a license in nearly 20 years."
The man was charged with careless driving, unlicensed driving and two charges of drink driving.
