A driver was sent to the hospital after her car struck a utility pole and brought down a transformer in Fern Rock.

It happened around 3:00 Saturday morning at the intersection of North 6th and Spencer streets.

Authorities say the 19-year-old female driver lost control of her vehicle shortly before slamming into the pole. The downed pole caused a power outage in some sections of Fern Rock.

The victim was taken to Albert Einstein Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
