DUMMER, NH (CBS) ā€“ A 60-year-old New York man was seriously injured after he lost control of a Porsche on Route 16 in Dummer, New Hampshire Saturday afternoon.

Police say George Gates was speeding and crashed the 1967 Porsche 911 into a telephone pole and then a tree.

Gates was wearing only a lap seatbelt at the time of the crash and suffered serious head injuries. He had to be cut out of the car by the Milan Fire Department. There were no other passengers in his vehicle.

Police say the crash happened at a section of road with ā€œSā€ curves and speed appears to be the only cause of the accident.
