BERLIN, Conn. (WTNH)– A person was taken to the hospital after their car ended up underneath a tractor trailer truck on the Berlin Turnpike Thursday morning.

Upon arrival, firefighters found a tractor trailer unit blocking the southbound lanes of the road with a car crashed into the landing gear portion of the trailer.

The driver of the car was hurt and taken by ambulance to Hartford Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Their identity and current condition were not released.
