A Brunswick man suffered minor injuries when he lost control of his vehicle on a patch of ice and struck a utility pole, snapping it in half, according to Brunswick police.

The crash happened around 9:30 p.m. on Old Bath Road in Brunswick, near James Street.

Ryan Doyle, 39, was driving south when he lost control of his Toyota RAV 4 and struck a Central Maine Power telephone pole. Police had to close the road due to dangling wires.

Doyle was taken to Maine Medical Center with injuries that aren’t believed to be life-threatening. He was treated and released the same day, according to a Maine Medical Center spokesperson.

CMP workers repaired the damaged pole and lines that night. Old Bath Road reopened around 11:40 p.m.
