THONOTOSASSA — A man is in critical condition after his truck hit a Tampa Electric power pole Tuesday morning.
Deputies say a 2010 Toyota Tundra veered off the road and struck the pole near County Road 579 and Skewlee Road about 10:30 a.m. The pole snapped in half, causing the power lines to fall.
Workers are repairing the lines now. The intersection of CR 579 and Skewlee Road is expected to be closed for several hours.
The driver, whom deputies have not named, was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he was in critical condition.
