A Greenville man was injured Monday when his vehicle slammed into a tree on Grosvenor, south of Sand Lake.

The Kent County Sheriff Department received a call about 8:56 a.m. Monday that a vehicle was on fire with someone trapped inside near Grosvenor and Northland Drive. When deputies arrived, they found a man pinned in the vehicle, but no fire.

According to Deputy Jason VanDyke, Allen Peckham, 36, of Greenville, was traveling on Grosvenor, east of Northland, when his vehicle left the road and struck a tree. Peckham was able to talk with deputies and fire personnel on the scene, but had an altered level of consciousness. He was extricated from the vehicle using the Jaws of Life, and flown by Aeromed to the hospital, with multiple leg fractures.

It is unknown at this time why his vehicle left the roadway. The accident is still under investigation.
