BARNARD, Vt. - Former FBI director Louis Freeh was airlifted to a hospital Monday after a single-car crash in Vermont, authorities said.

State police said Freeh was taken by helicopter to a New Hampshire hospital with serious injuries following the crash in Barnard, a small town about 90 miles northwest of Boston.

Freeh's name was not on a list for which patient information was available, according to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.

Freeh apparently drove his SUV off the road shortly after midday and struck a mailbox and row of shrubs before coming to a stop on the side of a tree, state police said. He was wearing his seatbelt.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation, police said. No one else was hurt.

Freeh, 64, 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 and conducted a review of the financial settlement program for Gulf Coast residents affected by the BP oil spill.

He is chairman of Center City Philadelphia's Pepper Hamilton L.L.P.
