OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department says one man has been arrested after crashing his car into a power pole.

It happened around 8pm Monday, September 1st in Ferrysburg.

Deputies say a 44-year old man was speeding along W. Spring Lake Road near Grand River Avenue when he lost control, crossed into an oncoming lane, then drove off northside of the road hitting a power pole.

He hit with so much force it brought the pole down onto Spring Lake along with live wires.

The road was shut down for two hours while they worked repairs.

The driver was not injured. He has been booked in to the Ottawa County Jail. We're working to learn on what charges.
