MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

Power has been restored to parts of Madison after an overnight crash knocked out a utility pole near Slaughter Road and Kannon Drive.

Emergency crews said a man left the road, flipped, and hit the pole just after 10 p.m. Tuesday night.

Crews used chainsaws to cut the driver out of the vehicle. The driver was taken to Huntsville Hospital with serious injuries.

Police closed Slaughter Road so Huntsville Utilities could restore power. Most of the power was restored just before midnight.
