State police said Louis Freeh, the former director of the FBI who served from September 1993 to June 2001, was hospitalized on Monday after sustaining injuries in a one-car accident in Vermont.
According to CNN, a law enforcement official said Freeh had injuries, which required surgery.
Police said Freeh was wearing his seat belt when his SUV went off the road and hit a mailbox and bushes before ending up near a tree, which is where the police said they found the car.
Freeh was flown to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire where he was undergoing surgery for his injuries.
The hospital has not released information on Freeh’s condition, per CNN, but state police said no one else was injured in the accident.
