Police have identified the man seriously injured in a one-car crash Sunday afternoon.

Investigators say a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on Lake Avenue drifted off the road, through a parking lot guide rail and into an empty parking lot where it hit a cement and steel pillar. Police say the impact was enough to bend the pillar and to cause the still moving vehicle to land on its roof.

Police say the driver, John Gizzarelli of Geneva, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital with serious head injuries.
