NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A man is suffering serious injuries after a two-car crash in New Haven Wednesday afternoon. 

Police said at 2:07 p.m., officers and firefighters were sent to the intersection of Peck Street and Blatchley Avenue after a resident reported a crash involving a Dodge Ram and a Subaru WRX.

Both departments arrived quickly and firefighters used the jaws of life to extricate the driver from the Subaru. He was transported by ambulance to the hospital for treatment. His injuries are considered serious and may be life-threatening.

Police said officers found video surveillance that showed the crash. The Dodge Ram traveled westbound on Blatchley Avenue as the Subaru traveled southbound on Peck Street. The Subaru ran a stop sign and collided with the Dodge Ram as it crossed the intersection. The Subaru veered sideways and struck a tree in the southwest corner of the intersection.
