Motorists in Chicopee had to deal with a slow commute home Thursday evening.
Chicopee police tell CBS 3 a man was taken to the hospital after veering his pickup truck off the road at Beauchamp Terrace and St. James Avenue earlier Thursday evening.
He was taken to Baystate Medical Center where he is in stable condition.
He also sheared a utility pole which police say will be an hours long process to replace.
Officers will remain on scene into the night as crews work to repair it.
Investigators say speed was a factor in the crash.
