WACO, Texas (KWTX) Waco firefighters had to extricate a driver from a car that struck a utility pole Thursday morning, but before they could, the electricity flowing into a downed line that appeared to be draped across the vehicle had to be shut off.

The accident happened at around 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the intersection of 13th Street and Austin Avenue.

The driver was taken to a local hospital.

No further details were immediately available.
