A man was in critical condition Wednesday afternoon after crashing into a light pole in North Las Vegas, police said.
Just after 1 p.m. a man driving a white Honda crashed into a light pole at Las Vegas Boulevard North and Evans Avenue, north of Carey Avenue, North Las Vegas Police Department spokesman Eric Leavitt said.
Officers and witnesses on scene attempted to pry the car’s door open to get the driver out of the vehicle; the door eventually was opened by the North Las Vegas Fire Department, Leavitt said.
The man was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition, but is expected to survive, Leavitt said Wednesday evening.
Further information about the crash was not immediately available.
