Arnold, Pa. – One man is transported to the hospital after crashing dead-center into a utility pole along Constitution Boulevard just before 7:30 pm Monday night.

At the scene, the man was initially evaluated by EMS crews, then a short time later he was put on a stretcher for transport to the hospital. The impact into the pole jarred electrical lines and started a small fire at the top of the pole. Some residents were without power for a short amount of time until West Penn Power arrived on scene to evaluate the damage.

The extent of the man injuries were unknown, however he was sitting up in the stretcher as he was wheeled to the rear of New Kensington’s EMS truck. The cause of the crash was not immediately known.
