A man is in Strong Memorial Hospital in serious but stable condition after firefighters pried him out of his wrecked car earlier this morning.


Police say they found the 25-year-old man in his overturned car which had slammed into a tree in front of 2453 Dewey Avenue. As of 8 am, Dewey was closed between Winchester and Bennington north of Ridge Road for the investigation.


The car hit and snapped a utility pole and brought the wires down before hitting the tree.


Police say speed was a factor in this one.
