ESSEX — A single-car crash on Belcher Street early Tuesday sent the driver to Beverly Hospital, though police said the man’s injuries were not life-threatening.

According to police, a Choate Street man had driven his car off Belcher Street and struck a tree. Police said the motorist was trapped in the vehicle for about 45 minutes, while the Fire Department used the Jaws of Life to extricate the man from the car.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
