The man who was in the car was checked over by ambulance crews at the scene.
Emergency services were called to the scene shortly after quarter to five yesterday afternoon after receiving reports of an overturned lorry.
Three fire engines from Middlesbrough, Stockton and Grangetown also attended the scene.
The cause of the incident and whether or not there are any injuries is not yet known.
