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.
