A two-car crash on Bungay Road in Seymour Thursday night sent a local man to the hospital in critical condition, according to police.
The crash occurred about 7:40 p.m. near the intersection of Bungay Road and Canfield Road.
A woman had turned left from Canfield Road onto Bungay, Seymour Police Lt. Paul Satkowski said, when a man driving north on Bungay road rear-ended her, then veered to the left and hit a telephone pole.
The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Satkowski said, and the man was taken to the St. Raphael Campus of Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment of “serious, life-threatening injuries.”
The identities of the drivers were not available Friday morning, Satkowski said, adding that the man, a Seymour resident, was in critical condition the last police checked.
The road was shut to traffic while police investigated the accident.
“The road was closed for several hours, traffic was detoured, and we brought in our accident reconstruction team, which remained on the scene,” Satkowski said.
The road re-opened to traffic early Friday.
Satkowski said the accident remains under investigation.
