TIVERTON, RI – A single-vehicle crash sent a man to the hospital with serious injuries in Tiverton on Friday.

According to the Fall River Reporter, the crash occurred close to 9:50 when an Acura RSX was reported to have crashed near 506 Crandall Road.

The driver, Tiverton resident Austin John Medeiros, 24, was northbound when the car reportedly veered into the oncoming lane. The vehicle first crashed into a telephone pole and then came to rest in a front yard where it struck a tree.

Witnesses to the crash removed Medeiros and a passenger from the wreck before responders arrived.

Medeiros was then taken to Rhode Island Hospital where he was treated for serious injuries.
