YORK – A one vehicle accident Monday evening in York sent one man to the hospital.
The York Police Department was dispatched at 8:45 p.m. to the corner of N Platte Ave and W 4th Street where a 2005 Chevy Impala driven by 70-year-old Jack Weldon had slammed into a light pole.
According to a witness, Weldon was heading south on Platte Ave when he swerved into the other lane, almost hitting the witness, banged into a curb and crashed head on into the pole. Weldon was transported to York General before being taken to Lincoln with internal injuries.
Authorities have not determined what caused the accident. A seatbelt was in use and was associated with Weldon’s injuries. The York Fire Department and York County Sheriff’s Office assisted on the scene.
