HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – A man is suffering from life-threatening injuries after crashing his vehicle into a utility pole.

Emergency crews closed Four Mile Post Road for several hours Wednesday night while they investigated a single-vehicle wreck.

It happened in front of the movie theater just before 11:00 p.m.   The driver of a pickup truck lost control of his vehicle and hit a utility pole. It took emergency crews roughly 20 minutes to get the driver, Eric David Harrison, out of the truck.  Paramedics took him to Huntsville Hospital in critical condition.

Crews closed Four Mile Post Road from Garth Road to Bailey Cove Road.  Investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash.

Power did go out for a short time in the area. Huntsville Utilities crews responded to the area to repair any damage the truck left behind.
