Man injured crashing SUV into power pole, home

Investigators are trying to determine what caused a 34-year-old man to lose control of his SUV early Sunday morning, smacking into a fence, a power pole, a stop sign and a home near the intersection of 30th Avenue and Bowdish Road in Spokane Valley. The man, whose name has not been released, was hospitalized with serious injuries after the crash, a news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said. He was driving north on Bowdish in a 2003 Ford Escape; the vehicle struck a fence on the east side of the road, crossed the center line to snap the power pole on the west side, then veered back to the east side to plow into the stop sign and residence. The man was listed in stable condition at the hospital, the news release said. No other injuries were reported. The power pole was repaired by Inland Power. A spokeswoman said no lines were broken and there was no power outage.
