Philadelphia SUV Crash Leaves Driver Unconscious, Downed Pole

The impact of a crash along a Philadelphia street overnight left the driver knocked out and a utility pole on the street.

The wreck closed Stenton Avenue at the intersection with Wistar Street in the city’s West Oak Lane neighborhood around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The male driver somehow lost control of his sport utility vehicle and struck some parked cars before slamming into a utility pole, said Philadelphia Police.

Medics rushed the victim to Einstein Hospital. He is expected to be OK, said police.

Expect delays in the area as crews work to clear the scene, which included a downed pole that fell across multiple lanes of the road.

It took more than one hour for a tow truck to remove the SUV. A short time later, police reopened the roadway.
