An SUV driver was taken to a medical facility following a crash in which the vehicle slammed into a utility pole along Marcus Garvey Drive late on Thursday.

The details of what caused the collision were still not clear up to late on Thursday night, but sources close to the scene told Loop News that some time near 8:30 p.m., the driver was travelling along the busy roadway when he lost control of the vehicle.

Reports are that the vehicle then crashed head-on into a utility pole that stood firm despite the intense impact of the collision.

The badly shaken driver, seemingly in his 40s, was seen lying on the ground close to the damaged vehicle minutes later.
