Police in CT say a man was critically injured when he was pinned between a auto and a tree as he was giving his 11-year-old daughter a driving lesson.

At about 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a home on James Street. The 25-year-old father, according to police, was in the passenger seat while the child was driving.

Several homes in the area were also evacuated, police said.

The man, who has not been identified, jumped out to try and stop the vehicle but was pinned between the auto and a tree, police said. "It's not an empty parking lot or a huge parking lot", neighbor Monica Zanders said.

Police said the auto crashed through a chain-linked fence and hit a gas line to the house.

The dad was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

FOX61 has a crew heading to the scene and will provide updates as soon as they become available.
