Driver injured in one-vehicle crash May 31

One person was injured in a one-vehicle crash Thursday evening on Riegel Road in Homewood. 

The vehicle struck a utility pole in the 18100 block, according to police. Homewood police and fire units responded to the scene after receiving the call shortly after 6:30 p.m.

The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Power was out for a short time until ComEd crews could respond.
