CONCORD -- A 45-year-old Richmond man suffered serious injuries after he crashed his car on Bates Avenue Tuesday afternoon, police said.
No one else was injured.
According to Lt. Darrell Graham, around 3:29 p.m. officers and fire crews responded to the 2200 block for reports of a vehicle that had crashed off the side of the road. When officers arrived, they found the driver, the only person in the car, stuck inside, suffering from severe injuries.
The driver was extricated by fire crews from his 2001 GMC pickup truck and rushed to John Muir Medical Center. He is, however, expected to survive.
According to police, the driver, who has not been identified, may have been speeding while he was traveling westbound on Bates Avenue toward Mason Circle when he veered off the road, struck a landscape rock and flipped over.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, Graham added.
