NEWTON, Mass. ( -- A Roslindale man was seriously injured in a crash on Route 9 in Newton Monday.

Officials say 24-year-old Jacob Griswold's pickup truck collided with a tractor-trailer just before 7 a.m. on Route 9 eastbound near the 200 block by the Chestnut Hill Mall. Video from the scene showed the truck lodged underneath the tractor-trailer.

After emergency crews failed to make contact with Griswold, Newton firefighters were able to extricate him from the vehicle. He was transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

The tractor-trailer driver, identified as 34-year-old Jarrod Morin, of Barre, was not injured in the crash.
