Police say 20-year-old Elias Nasser of Oneida was driving south on Route 12 around 8:15 p.m. when he allegedly drove his Volkswagon GTI off of the ramp to Route 840, went airborne, and came to a rest on the car’s roof.

When emergency crews arrived they found a passenger, 21-year-old Kristopher Wuest, trapped inside the car. Wuest was removed from the car by the Utica Fire Department and taken to a hospital for treatment. Police say Wuest is currently in critical condition.

Police say Nasser and the car’s two other passengers suffered “non-critical” injuries.

No word on if any tickets have been issued. Police say their investigation is ongoing, but speed is believed to be a factor.
