A car crosses 3 lanes of traffic, crashing into a power line and sending the driver to a hospital. 

Just after 10 A.M. Wednesday officials were called to an accident just east of Malang Road and 7th Street.

A Carl Junction firefighter we spoke to says he believes the car was heading west when it crossed through traffic, went off the road, and hit a power line. 

The firefighter found a man in the driver’s seat, and believes he suffered a medical emergency.

He was taken to a hospital, where his current medical condition is unknown. 

Highway Patrol Troopers and MODOT officials also responded to help divert traffic.

No other injuries have been reported.
