Man taken to hospital after van hits power pole

Posted: Updated:
NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) -

We have a crew on the scene of an accident in Newburgh.

It happened around 7 this morning near the intersection of Bell Road and Hwy 66.

Authorities tell us the driver lost control of his van and hit the power pole.

That driver was taken to the hospital, but was he conscious on the scene.

Authorities tell us they'll be shutting down Bell Road south of 66 in the next few minutes to remove the power pole.

The stop light will go dark at that intersection so officials will be directing traffic.

Vectren says several hundred Newburgh customers were without power while crews repaired the power pole. Officials say power has since been restored to all affected customers.
