At 10:25 p.m., a light-colored sedan headed west on Indiana at a high rate of speed. The driver lost control of the vehicle as it flew through the intersection at Lee Road, making contact with a telephone pole, shattering it and taking out power to almost a thousand area residents.
The car flipped and came to rest 75 yards west of the intersection in a yard. The driver got out of the vehicle and ran east, but collapsed on the lot of the gas station on the corner, presumably from their injuries.
The 20-year-old male was transported to Merit Health, River Region where he is in serious condition.
Units with the Fisher Ferry Fire Department, Deputy Daniel Thomas, Deputy Ron Nation and Fire Boss Jerry Briggs along with Rescue and Firemedic 40 worked the accident scene.
Entergy was also in the area, beginning the process of repairing the damage and restoring power. The Entergy Outage map says power will be back on by 1 a.m.
