At least one person was injured Sunday when a Honda Civic crashed into a pole, sheared it and veered over into the opposite lane, jumping the curb onto a sidewalk in Wildomar.
The crash -- on westbound Clinton Keith Road -- was reported about 12:20 p.m., east of Inland Valley Drive, Patch learned.
Westbound Clinton Keith was shut down for a time to clear the wreck, Patch learned at the scene, but motorists were allowed to go both ways on the east side, their progress controlled by traffic deputies.
The man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital but a condition report was not immediately available.
The cause of the crash was under investigation.
It was unclear whether any residents were affected by the communication pole's damage.
