The accident happened just before 1:30 p.m. around S. 19th and South Treadaway. According to police, a man heading north on Treadaway somehow struck a pickup truck on the other side of traffic at the intersection of Oak Street. The driver lost control, ricocheted from a building and crashed into a light pole.
The driver was sent to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries, APD says. At this time, it's unsure what may have caused the driver to hit another vehicle.
American Electric Power was at the scene to fix the line.
