A Salina man was cited after a one-vehicle accident early Monday morning.

Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning that first responders were dispatched to the intersection of North Ninth Street and West North Street at 5:25 a.m. for the report of a one-vehicle wreck. Mark Crawford, 62, of Salina, had crashed his 1999 Honda Odyssey into a power pole belonging to Evergy, snapping the pole and causing the power lines to fall onto the railroad tracks, Forrester said.

Crawford complained of neck pain and was taken to Salina Regional Health Center, he said.

A witness told police that the Honda was westbound on West North Street at a high rate of speed and ran the stop sign at the North Ninth Street intersection before striking the power pole, Forrester said.

Crawford was cited for the following, Forrester said.

No valid driver's license

Having an obstructed windshield (ice)

Failing to stop at a stop sign
