GLENDALE ? A man crashed his truck into a utility pole on San Fernando Road Monday morning, knocking it and a second pole down and cutting off electricity to surrounding homes and businesses, police said.
The man apparently lost control of his Chevrolet S-10 pick-up truck, hitting a utility pole after he turned north onto San Fernando Road from Electronics Place just west of the railroad tracks, Los Angeles Police Officer Richard Eagleson said.
At least two other cars parked alongside the road were damaged, he said.
The man was taken to USC Medical Center complaining of chest pains, Eagleson said. The man also hit his head on the windshield, but he is expected to be OK, Eagleson said.
