West Springfield police had a portion of Piper Road blocked off Sunday morning following a crash involving a 95-year-old man.

Police were still on scene when our crew arrived at around 11 a.m. 

Police Chief, Ronald Campurciani tells Western Mass News the man was transported by ambulance to the hospital.

" ...A 95 year old man was coming out of the Baptist church and drove across Piper Rd and struck a telephone pole. Looks like he had a medical emergency," explained Campurciani.  

We did see police laying out tape across the road from the car as they worked the scene. 

Both police and fire crews responded along with Red's Towing out of West Springfield.

Further details weren't immediately available.

No word yet on the condition of the 95-year-old man, but West Springfield Police say that he is still being treated at a local hospital.

Police say that the 95 year-old will not be charged with anything.
