The driver was taken by squad to Springfield Regional Medical Center.
The crash damaged the center front of the car, the report says. The car’s airbags didn’t deploy, the report says.
It’s unknown how the driver went left of center, Springfield Police Division Sgt. Jerome Montico said.
“We’re still investigating what caused the accident … It was a pretty straight-on collision with the pole,” he said.
The car allegedly was going about 55 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone, the report says. The roads were also wet and snowy, it says.
