EAST WINDSOR, CT (WFSB) -

A driver was hospitalized after he crashed his vehicle into trees in East Windsor.

Police said they responded to the collision on Woolam Road near the intersection with Cemetery Road just before midnight on Thursday.

Officers said they found the unidentified driver still in the vehicle. He was placed onto a stretcher and transported to the hospital with what they described as "moderate injuries."

Investigators said the impact with the tree caused the vehicle's engine to be thrown from it.

They said speed appeared to have been a factor, but the crash remains under investigation.
