A Newington man was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries after a crash on Route 15 north in Meriden on Monday morning.
State police said a truck was traveling in the center lane of three on Route 15 northbound near the exit 67 on ramp shortly before 2 a.m. when a car rear-ended it.
The collision sent the car into the right shoulder where it came to a final rest partially in the right lane, state police added.
According to police, the car involved in the collision sustained heavy, disabling front-end damage and the driver, identified by authorities as a 24-year-old Newington man, had to be extricated.
The man was initially transported to Midstate Medical Center in Meriden to be treated for his injuries, state police said. He was later rushed to Hartford Hospital for treatment of serious injuries, they added.
LifeStar was called to the scene, but could not fly due to the weather.
The highway and all exits and on ramps that were closed have since reopened.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
