TOWN OF PELICAN - A one-car crash near Rhinelander sends the driver to the hospital.

Shortly after 7 a.m. this morning, the car went off the road, hitting a tree in the 4600 block of County Road P in the Town of Pelican.

Rescuers had trouble opening the doors of the SUV when they first approached the accident.

Pastor Norman Peterson is the Deputy Chief for the Town of Pelican Volunteer Fire Department, "When I arrived on scene the ambulance was here, as were the deputies. We were told that the vehicle was locked and the person was unconscious."

Eventually, emergency workers were able to get into the SUV and check on the condition of the driver, Peterson says, "As I got up to the scene, the deputies and the ambulance personnel had gotten the doors open. So it was just a matter of removing the driver and transporting him to the hospital."

The cause of the crash is unknown at this time.

The driver, a 26 year old Rhinelander man, was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Rhinelander.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Department is investigating the accident.
