A 22-year-old Savannah man was injured when the car he was driving hit a tree on Waters Avenue early Friday morning.

Savannah-Chatham Metro Police said that 3:11 a.m., Tyrone Griffin was driving north on Waters Avenue near Althea Parkway when a 1999 Honda Accord crossed the center line into the southbound lane. Police said he overcorrected, lost control of the car that slid back across the northbound lane and into a tree.

Griffin had to be extricated from his vehicle by Savannah firefighters. He was taken to Memorial University Medical Center and is in serious condition.
