ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) — A driver was taken to the hospital in critical condition after a crash in DeKalb County early Thursday morning, according to police.

The DeKalb County Police Department said officers responded shortly after midnight to the 600 block of Decatur Village Way, off Scott Boulevard in the Decatur area, in reference to a vehicle accident.

Police said it appears the driver of a Sedan hit a parked tractor-trailer, causing it to veer and strike a utility pole.

Footage from the scene shows the car turned over on its side.

Police said the driver was freed and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing, police said.
