The driver of a pickup truck was flown to University of Michigan Hospital in critical condition after crashing into a tree on Prospect Hill Road in Sharon Township.
The man was driving the truck south on Prospect Hill south of Below Road when it ran off the road and into the tree, said Manchester Township Fire Chief Bill Scully.
Firefighters had to cut the door of the pickup truck to get the man out of the truck and move him to the helicopter, Scully said. The driver was the only occupant of the truck.
