A serious crash on Lake Avenue sent one man to the hospital Sunday afternoon.

The crash happened near Kodak just after 2 p.m. News10NBC is told the car was heading north when it veered onto the sidewalk, crashed through the guardrail and flipped over.

Emergency crews had to extricate the driver from the car. He was taken to Strong Hospital for treatment. His injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.

The crash is still under investigation.

This crash happened along a stretch of Lake Avenue the city wants to modify. The city has proposed removing the light and reducing traffic to a single lane. City leaders say this will slow the traffic and make it safer to drive through the area.
