Belmont police are investigating a single-vehicle crash that seriously injured the driver and a young passenger Monday evening.

Raymond Sherburne, 48, of Gilmanton was driving north on Route 107 from his hometown into Belmont when he lost control of his 2015 Chevrolet 1500 pickup truck, police said. Sherburne was traveling downhill when he lost steering ability and left the roadway, causing the pickup to crash into a line of trees on the opposite side of the road.

Police said Sherburne was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash and was ejected through the front window of the truck. A helicopter was requested to the scene, but unable to fly due to the inclement weather. As a result, Sherburne was taken by ambulance to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.

His passenger, who was wearing a seatbelt, suffered a possible broken pelvis, police said.

The pickup truck was totaled.

Speed and snowy road conditions were factors in the crash, police said.
