A New Hartford man escaped serious injury in a one-car car accident on Kellogg Road.

New Hartford Police say 20-year Joshua Bushey lost control of his vehicle and struck a bridge support pillar under the Route 8 overpass.

The collision with the pillar caused the driver side of the vehicle to become crushed, trapping Bushey inside.  Bushey was trapped inside the car for about an hour before emergency crews could free him.

He was taken to the hospital with a shoulder injury and internal injuries to his abdomen.

Bushey was ticketed for reckless driving and speed not reasonable.
