AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A man was seriously injured in a single-car crash in Aurora Monday morning.

Lt. Charles DeShazer with Aurora police said at about 6 a.m. officers and fire personnel responded to a report of a single vehicle collision near East 2nd Avenue and Potomac Street.

“Upon arriving, officers found a 1987 Chevy Camaro had struck and sheered a power pole off at the ground. The male driver of the car was unconscious and was removed from the vehicle, then transported to a local hospital,” DeShazer said in a statement.

The driver was traveling northbound in the right lane when his car hit snow and ice that was piled on the road.

“The car became airborne for a short distance and then struck the pole head-on,” DeShazer said.

Officers believe the driver was not wearing a seatbelt. Alcohol may have played a role in the crash.

The driver’s name has not been released.
