      Man hospitalized after crashing car into utility pole

      A Negaunee man was taken to the hospital after crashing his car into a utility pole.

      The 65-year-old man was on North Road in Negaunee when his car went into the ditch around 3 p.m. The car snapped the utility pole in half causing power lines to fall on the car and the road.

      According to the Marquette County Sheriff's Office, the driver refused to get out of the car until the power lines were turned off.

      The man was taken to Bell Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. The cause of the crash is unknown, but officials say alcohol was not a factor.
