BARNARD, Vt. (AP) - Former FBI director Louis Freeh has been hospitalized following a single-car crash in Vermont.

State police say Freeh was airlifted to a New Hampshire hospital with serious injuries following the crash Monday afternoon in Barnard. The hospital said Freeh's name was not on a list for which patient information was available.

Investigators say it appears Freeh drove off the road and struck a mailbox and a row of shrubs before coming to a stop on the side of a tree. He was wearing his seatbelt.

Freeh is a former federal judge who led the FBI from 1993 to 2001. More recently, he was hired by Penn State to examine the handling of child sex abuse complaints involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
