A 32-year-old Darien man was taken to Stamford Hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries” after an SUV he was driving hit a tree on the side of a Darien road at about 3 a.m. on Sunday, police said.
Police are still investigating the collision, which was reported at 3:05 a.m., May 27 after a black 2011 Nissan Rogue going north on Hollow Tree Ridge Road hit the tree near the corner of Miles Road in the Noroton section of town.
There were no passengers, and no one else was hurt in the incident, police said.
A police spokesman responded Thursday to a request for information about the incident from Darienite.com after someone asked the news organization for information about the matter. [If you have a news tip, email firstname.lastname@example.org.]
The police spokesman had no information on the extent of the driver’s injuries or whether police charged the man with any violations of the law.
Police did not say so in connection with this incident, but they typically send search warrants to hospitals for information on blood-alcohol content of drivers in accidents where driving while under the influence is possible and the driver is sent to a hospital. Police gave no indication that intoxicated driving was involved in this collision.
