Traffic was shut down for about an hour from Blue Avenue to Newark Road due to a one vehicle crash.

According to Sergeant John McCoy, it appears the driver of a blue Oldsmobile was traveling southbound on Adair Avenue, intending to make a right turn on Old Newark Road. 

The driver told Sergeant McCoy that his blood sugar dropped, which caused him to black out, cross the center lane, travel off the road and crash into a telephone pole.

The driver was treated at the scene for minor injuries.  The streetlight he crashed into was completely knocked down.

American Electric Power was called to the scene.  The name of the driver has not been released and the investigation is pending.
