Car strikes pole in Peterborough

One man was taken to hospital after a car struck a pole last night in Peterborough.

The collision happened on Water Street around 8:20 p.m., just north of University Heights Boulevard.

Witnesses say the man got out of the car after the crash, but then fell to the ground.

It’s not yet clear what caused the crash, and the extent of the man’s injuries isn’t known.

One lane of Water Street was closed while police investigated – but has since reopened.
