At 5:01 a.m. Thursday, a 2005 Nissan passenger car driven by Casey Jones, 23, of Lubbock went through an intersection in east Lubbock County - at C.R. 2860 and C.R. 6540 - and hit a pole.
Police say the telephone pole fell on top of the car and Jones was trapped inside. The Jaws of life were called to get him out. He was taken to UMC with unknown injuries.
South Plains Electrical is working to fix the telephone pole and restore power to that area.
DPS troopers are directing traffic around the area until power is restored.
