A car that struck a pole in the Eglinton West area sent one man to hospital with minor injuries and caused a power outage early Saturday morning. Toronto Paramedics said they responded to the collision at Weston Road and Eglinton Avenue after 3 a.m.
They said the vehicle was going eastbound on Eglinton Avenue, approaching Weston Road, when it was cut off and went north into the westbound lanes. It then hit a hydro pole at the intersection. The driver, a man believed to be in his 30s, was taken to a local hospital.
Toronto Hydro said their crew was able to restore power by 7:30 a.m. and remained on the scene after to fix the pole.
The intersection was closed while officers investigated but reopened before 9 a.m.
