SAUGUS — Saugus Police are investigating a head-on collision between a sedan and a tow truck on Lincoln Avenue that left the sedan driver seriously injured.

Police responded to the crash at the intersection of Lincoln and Palmer avenues around 12:40 p.m. Tuesday.

Firefighters spent more than 20 minutes using hydraulic tools to extricate the driver, a 38-year-old Saugus man, from a 2012 Toyota Camry, according to a statement from Interim Police Chief Ronald Giorgetti.

The driver is reported to be “in very serious condition,” having suffered serious, life-threatening injuries, said Giorgetti.

The driver of the 2007 flatbed tow truck, a 57-year-old man from Hudson, N.H., did not sustain any injuries from the crash.

An accident reconstruction team was requested to examine the site.

The crash remains under investigation by Saugus Police.
