Power crews were called to north Salina after a van snapped a pole sending electrical lines onto the railroad track below.
According to Police Captain Paul Forrester, around 5:30am Monday, 62-year-old Mark Crawford ran a stop sign in his 1999 Honda Odyssey and smashed into an Evergy power pole at 9th and North Street.
A witness told police that he was traveling at a high rate of speed as he entered the intersection.
Crawford was transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center with a possible neck injury.
He was cited for driving without a valid license, having ice on his windshield and for running a stop sign.
