FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A man was hospitalized early Tuesday morning after a single vehicle crash on West Till Road.
Police were called to the 700 block of West Till Road between Coldwater and Lima Roads around 12:30 a.m.
Investigators believe a small pickup truck was eastbound on Till when the driver left the road. The driver snapped a utility pole in half, drove off the road for approximately 100 yards and then came back across both lanes before hitting a smaller utility pole and crashing into a tree head-on.
The driver was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
Police believe alcohol was a likely factor in the crash.
Till Road was closed for approximately two hours while utility crews worked to repair the poles and fix downed wires.
The crash is under investigation.
