GRAFTON, Mass. — Traffic was backed up on Worcester Street in Grafton for about an hour Tuesday afternoon after a car flipped off the road and over a guardrail, police said.
Grafton police were called to the scene at about 3:15 p.m. A southbound gray Toyota Camry swerved into the northbound lane before sailing over a guardrail and coming to rest on its side in a swampy area just before the driveway to 106 Worcester St., police said.
The unidentified male driver was pulled from the vehicle and transported to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, police said.
The car's tailpipe rested at the side of the road, apparently dislodged in the crash. Firefighters and a crew from Direnzo Towing and Recovery of Millbury attached ropes and chains to the car to haul it back over the guardrail.
The cause of the crash was under investigation by Grafton police.
