TULSA - A USPS driver lost control of his truck and drove into an electrical pole on North Darlington before crashing through a fence and coming to a stop in the yard of a nearby home.

Officers say the driver was pinned by his dashboard, and firefighters had to use the jaws of life to extract him.

EMSA paramedics transported him to the hospital to get checked out. He suffered minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

Tulsa Police closed North Darlington between Archer and Easton during the cleanup.

A Public Service Company of Oklahoma crew is at the scene to replace the electrical pole.
