A 17-year-old driver has been issued a summons after a one-car crash on Sinnott Road in Arundel on Tuesday.

The crash happened about 1:35 p.m., when a sedan driven by an Arundel teenager went off the road and hit a utility pole as he headed to Kennebunkport.

York County Deputy Gregg Sevigny responded to the crash on Sinnott Road. The car broke the pole and rolled onto its side, with wires landing on top of it.

The two teenagers inside were able to crawl out. The driver was taken to a hospital by his family for a cut on his hand. The passenger was not injured.

Arundel Fire and Rescue responded to the scene. Electrical service was disrupted and the road was closed for about three hours while Kennebunk Light and Power replaced the pole and reconnected the power lines.

The driver, who has not been named, was summoned on a charge of driving at an imprudent speed and for a seatbelt violation.
