A man escaped serious injury Monday after he flipped his SUV on its side traveling on Peace Street in Stratford.
Assistant Fire Chief Tim Brennan said the middle-aged male had to be extricated through the front window of the Acura SUV. The accident was called in at 12:28 p.m., he said.
The man, who was alert when emergency officials arrived, complained of left side pain and shortness of breath and was transported to a nearby hospital, Brennan said. The injuries did not appear to be life-threatening, he said.
The car was traveling east on Peace Street when the driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to spin and flip on its side, Brennan said. Though the car had Florida plates, the assistant chief could not confirm that the man was a resident of that state.
