DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Nearly 3,000 people had their power knocked out after a rollover crash took out a power pole early Friday morning in Dayton.

The crash happened just before 5 a.m. at W. Second Street and Williams Street.

Dayton Police tell us the crash sent one man to Miami Valley Hospital with life-threatening injuries. DPD said they believe the crash happened after the driver hit a car on the opposite side of the street before hitting the pole a short time later.

AES Ohio confirms the crash also created nearly 3,000 outages in the area, but was mostly restored before 7 a.m.

Our 2 NEWS photographer on scene confirms the pole was severed and was only being held up by the surrounding wires.
