It’s unclear whether he’d suffered some kind of seizure of whether a vehicle may have suddenly pulled out of Columbus Drive headed south.

The driver, apparently in his late 20s or early 30s, appeared responsive as he was placed on a stretcher, his neck in a brace.

There were no skidmarks at the scene.

No other vehicles had stopped.

“It looked like he just plowed right into [the tree],” one onlooker told CLIFFVIEW PILOT.

Police briefly closed a stretch of Knickerbocker Road from East Clinton to Hickory avenues.
