A driver who apparently suffered a medical problem while driving Wednesday morning on Whitney Street, lost control of the SUV and left the road, becoming wedged between a utility police and a tree.
The driver, who was not identified, was treated at the scene by Westport EMS and transported to Norwalk Hospital for treatment of what police said were non-life-threatening injuries.
The incident took place about 8:20 a.m. Wednesday when a 2003, which was heading east on Whitney Street, left the road after crossing into the opposite land and then struck a tree and utility pole. Police said it appeared the driver had suffered some kind of medical episode.
Crews from Connecticut Light & Power shut off power in the area while the SUV was removed from the accident scene.
