One person was taken to the hospital after a passenger vehicle traveling eastbound on State Road 130 lost control and struck a utility pole just outside of Wheeler today, shearing the pole in half. Wires are also down. Union Fire Department Assistant Chief Tim Beach tells the Region News Team that extrication was not necessary, and the individual was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. The accident happened around 10 am just east of the Union Fire Station in Union Township on State Road 130.
Union Fire officials say State Road 130 is shut down from County Road 475 West/Sedley Road to County Road 625 West, and may be closed a couple of hours to clear the crash scene and replace the pole.
