Driver flown for treatment after pickup truck slams into tree (PHOTOS)

A 49-year-old Belvidere area man was flown by helicopter for treatment following a one-vehicle crash Friday in Warren County, New Jersey State Police said.

The driver, whose name was not immediately released, drove a Ford pickup truck off the right side of the road and crashed into a tree shortly before 1:45 p.m. in the 400 block of Hazen Oxford Road in White Township, said Trooper Alejandro Goez.

The driver suffered a leg injury that was not believed to be life-threatening, police said.

There was no indication he had any passengers with him.

The Oxford Rescue Squad with paramedics from Hunterdon Medical Center took the driver to a landing zone set up by the Mountain Lake Fire Co. and Oxford Volunteer Fire Department at the former Oxford Mill off Port Colden Road in Oxford Township, according to a report from the scene.

From there, he was flown by Atlantic Air Three for treatment at Morristown Medical Center.

The crash remained under investigation.
