A wild ride has come to a sopping end for a driver who ended up sitting on his submerged car in wetlands at Adelaide after allegedly ramming multiple cars.

The driver in a blue Mitsubishi was allegedly speeding down the Salisbury Highway at Dry Creek in the city's north when it rear-ended a black Toyota about 3pm on Thursday.

The Mitsubishi allegedly kept going and clipped a Holden station wagon before it went through a fence on a grass median strip and veered onto the wrong side of the road, South Australia police said.

It then crashed into the rear of a truck and careered out of control into wetlands where it plunged into the water.

The 30-year-old driver from Christies Downs was found sitting on the roof of the partially submerged car and arrested.

He is due to be charged with driving under the influence of drugs and or alcohol, driving in a dangerous manner to the public and driving while disqualified.

The man will be refused bail and is due to appear in court on Friday.
