STAMFORD, CT (WFSB) -- Speed is believed to have been a factor in a serious crash that happened late Friday night in Stamford.

The crash happened Courtland Avenue, just after 11 p.m.

Police said a Honda Accord was heading southbound on Courtland Avenue.

The driver told police he was trying to turn left into a driveway when he was hit from behind by a Infiniti G35. 

Police said the Infiniti struck the Honda with enough force "to propel it a significant distance further south on Courtland Avenue."

The driver of the Infiniti, identified as a 21-year-old Stamford resident, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, and is in critical condition.

The Honda driver was also taken to the hospital with injuries.

An investigation is ongoing.
