— A car crashed into a tree on the side of U.S. Highway 64 in Wendell on Tuesday morning.

It was not apparent what caused the driver of the gray sedan to lose control and hit the tree. The hood was crumpled, and a panel seemed to have been pulled away from the driver's side door.

A trooper said the driver was taken to the hospital after slamming into the tree, but that they were expected to be okay.

The traffic flow did not seem to be impeded by the crash, and a tow truck was on the scene.
