LOWELL -- A 20-year-old Dracut man was hospitalized Tuesday afternoon after his pickup truck rolled onto its side during a collision with a sport utility vehicle on Thorndike Street at Highland Street in Lowell.

The crash snarled traffic on the already busy Thorndike Street about 5:45 p.m.

Firefighters got hydraulic tools ready to get the 20-year-old out of his pickup truck, but ended up not using them since they were able to free the man by sawing the windshield out of his truck.

It was not immediately clear how severe the man's injuries were, but they were not believed to be life-threatening. He was taken to a city hospital.

It appeared the 20-year-old's pickup truck was attempting to turn left from the outbound lane of Thorndike Street onto Highland Street when it was struck by a Nissan Pathfinder that was inbound on Thorndike Street.

Police said a 35-year-old Lowell man was driving the Pathfinder.

The driver of the pathfinder declined to comment, as did a woman at the scene who witnessed the collision.

They both gave statements to police. It was not immediately clear whether anyone will be cited.

The scene was cleaned up and clear by 6:30 p.m.
