A man’s been busted allegedly drug-driving after crashing his ute into a barrier on the Pacific Motorway.

The 39-year-old lost control while travelling along the Smith Street off-ramp at Arundel around 3am on Monday.

Police confirmed the man managed to get himself out of the vehicle, however he was suffering a nasty head injury.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics, before being taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital for treatment.

He has since been issued with a notice to appear for driving under the influence of a drug.

The man will face Southport Magistrates Court on May 27.
