(Fargo, ND) -- A Fargo man has suffered serious injuries after crashing his car early Sunday.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol tells WDAY Radio that they were called to the 2900 block of 32nd street south around 5 a.m. to reports of a crash. The driver, identified as 18-year-old Miguel Rendon, was speeding and failed to negotiate a curb, sticking a small tree, then entering a backyard and hitting a bigger tree.

Rendon was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash, and had to be extricated from his car before being taken to Sanford Health.

Alcohol is a factor in the crash, and Rendon has been officially charged with DUI.

The crash remains under investigation.
