A 41-year-old Corfu resident who rolled a sedan in a single-vehicle accident on Wilkinson Road on Sunday evening is in guarded condition at Strong Memorial Hospital this morning.
Raymond Pfalzer, a resident of Brown Road, reportedly suffered a serious head injury in the accident and was transported to Strong by Mercy Flight.
The accident was reported at 8:20 p.m.
Pfalzer was reportedly southbound on Wilkinson Road and failed to negotiate a turn onto Brown Road. His 1976 Chevy two-door sedan began to fishtail and the car went off the west shoulder, striking a utility pole and making a complete rotation before coming to rest on its wheels.
Charges may be pending against Pfalzer.
According to protocol at Strong Memorial Hospital, when a patient is listed in guarded condition it means he's in the intensive care unit.
The accident was investigated by Deputy James Diehl.
East Pembroke Fire Department and Mercy EMS assisted at the scene.
