A pole was snapped in an accident Saturday morning in Millcreek that detoured traffic for five hours.

A man fell asleep behind the wheel of his Chevrolet Silverado truck on West 12th St. near Marshall Dr. around 7 a.m.

The truck hit and snapped a utility pole, so Penelec crews were called in to make repairs.

Rescuers took the male driver and a female passenger to UPMC Hamot for treatment of their injuries.

Police have not said if they were seriously hurt.
