NBCUniversal, Inc.

A two-vehicle crash Monday evening left a man seriously injured and debris scattered across a Boston roadway.

The crash, along Franklin Park near the intersection of Morton and Canterbury streets on the Roxbury/Mattapan line, happened just before 6 p.m. and involved a Subaru Ascent and a Lexus sedan.

Massachusetts State Police say a 35-year-old Boston man was stopped on Morton Street and outside of his Subaru at the time of the crash. He suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, police say. It appears he was hauling some sort of cargo including wood boards at the time of the accident.

The Lexus was driven by a 19-year-old from Quincy but police say they have no information on his injuries.

Footage from Sky Ranger showed the two vehicles facing one another, both badly damaged.

One lane of the street was closed to deal with the crash, while traffic was able to pass in another lane. Both vehicles were towed, and the scene was cleared around 8 p.m.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
