A mishap related to a tow-truck resulted in the hospitalization of one person Sunday afternoon on Route 1 in Sharon.

Capt. Bryant Simpson of the Sharon Fire Dept. said one person was transported to Boston Medial Center with non-life-threatening injuries when he was caught in-between his own vehicle and a state police cruiser.

Simpson said the victim's disabled vehicle was on a tow truck on the side of the road and rolled off, striking the male victim and catching him in-between his car and the police cruiser, which was parked behind the tow truck. The result was a lower body injury.

The incident occurred just before the Route 95 exit and the cause is currently under investigation by the Massachusetts State Police, according to a State Police spokesman.

Simpson said nobody else was injured in the accident.
