A delivery truck from a Queens bakery smashed into a tree on Route 25 in Southold Saturday, sending the driver to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, authorities said.

Southold Town police said Jose Rivera was driving east on Main Road just after 10 a.m. when he lost control of the truck around a curve in the road. The truck — from Tom Cat Bakery in Long Island City — swerved off the road and collided with a tree on the grounds of St. Patrick’s Church, according to a Southold Fire Department statement.

Mr. Rivera got himself out of the truck before firefighters arrived and was taken by Southold rescue volunteers to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment, the statement reads.

The truck was later pulled from around the tree and towed from the scene, fire officials said.
