Local News

A man is in critical condition after crashing into a tree Sunday night. 

Police were called to the intersection of Lima Valley Dr. and Northbury Dr. just before 9 p.m. When they arrived, they found one car with heavy front end damage and a broken tree. The driver was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but was later downgraded to critical. He was the only person in the car. 

According to investigators, the man was driving north on Lima before turning west onto Lima Valley Drive. As he continued down Lima Valley Dr., the car left the road and hit a tree. 

Police say speed and alcohol do appear to be factors in the crash as witnesses also reported the man was driving recklessly on both roads.

Anyone who may have witnessed this crash is asked to contact police. The crash is under investigation.
