— A teenager was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center on Saturday after his arm was pinned underneath his car after it crashed.

Capt. Devin Helland with Benton Fire District 1 said the crash happened Saturday morning as the driver, who wasn't identified, was driving a two-door sedan eastbound on Wiser Parkway toward East Badger Road.

The cause of the crash isn't known, but Helland said the driver somehow lost control of the vehicle and it rolled.

The driver's arm became pinned during the crash. Firefighters helped extricate him. His status was not immediately available, but Helland said the driver's injuries were nonlife-threatening.
