A man is being treated for serious injuries after authorities found him pinned inside his car Sunday morning.

According to officials with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol, Larry Holder, 24, from Middlesex, was heading eastbound on N.C. Highway 42 near Thanksgiving Fire Road before 9 a.m. when he swerved to avoid a deer. His car went off the road, into the woods, and crashed into a tree.
