A man was seriously hurt Thursday morning when he crashed his car into a pole in Covina, authorities said.
The crash happened on Glendora Avenue at Puente Street at 2:30 a.m., said Sgt. Trevor Gaumer of the Covina Police Department.
Witnesses told police the man was driving his car southbound on Glendora Avenue and went through the intersection where Glendora ends without slowing, crashing into a pole before he hit a tree, Gaumer said.
Firefighters used the Jaws of Life to free the man from his vehicle so he could be taken by helicopter to USC Medical Center, the sergeant said.
The crash was under investigation and police were considering alcohol as one possible cause, Gaumer said.
