SPENCER – A 20-year-old man sustained serious injuries in an early morning crash on Saturday.
Police said the driver of a 2011 Chevrolet Silvarado was partially ejected and pinned beneath the vehicle which overturned after crashing near 83 Maple Street.
A flurry of calls to 911 shortly before 2 a.m. alerted police to the crash, Lt. Norman Hodgerney said.
Firefighters were able to free the man, who sustained serious injuries to his leg. He was taken by Spencer Rescue Squad to David Prouty High School, transferred to a medical helicopter and flown to UMass Memorial Medical Center – University Campus, Hodgerney said.
Charlton Firefighters were also called to the scene to assist and provide additional equipment, Fire Chief Robert Parsons said.
He was listed in serious condition on Monday, according to Hodgerney.
The investigation into the crash is being conducted by members of the Central Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council’s reconstruction unit. Hodgerney said speed appears to have been a factor in the crash. It was unclear whether the victim was wearing a seatbelt, Hodgerney said.
Police declined to identify the victim, citing the ongoing investigation but said he is a Spencer resident.
