A Bound Brook man was taken to the hospital with a possible concussion after he flipped his vehicle while driving on Route 22 in the area of Adamsville Road Tuesday afternoon.
North Branch Fire Company and Green Knoll Fire Company were on the scene Tuesday to help with the rescue of the man whose car had ended up deep in the woods off the road.
William Pfeiffer, 73, was taken to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital after the accident that occurred around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
According to Bridgewater Township Sgt. Gregory Duane, Pfeiffer was driving a 2011 Honda Civic when he lost control of the vehicle and exited the road. The vehicle, Duane said, struck a curb and an embankment before going airborne.
Duane said the vehicle struck two trees, then flipped over onto its roof.
Pfeiffer told police that he was cut off by a vehicle with an unknown make, model and color, Duane said.
The dog that was also in the vehicle, Duane said, was taken to Somerset Regional Animal Shelter while Pfeiffer was in the hospital.
Any witnesses to the accident are asked to contact Bridgewater Township Police Officer Jason Daunton at 908-722-411, ext. 4174.
Police are continuing to investigate the accident.
