A Bayville man is in the hospital this morning with a broken femur and possible internal injuries following a single-car crash just after midnight on Route 70 in Brick.

Police said that George Francis, 32, was heading westbound near Chambers Bridge Road and Cedar Bridge Avenue when he veered off the road to the right and struck a guard rail which sent him back across the left side of the road and hit a curb and another guard rail which flipped over his vehicle.
