Police said Bryan Stitham, 24, as traveling northbound in E Plantation when he lost control of his pickup and went off the right side of the road.
The truck snapped a utility pole in half and continued through a patch of trees before coming to a stop.
Police say speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash.
Stitham reportedly told police he had been drinking beer and was given a field sobriety test.
Stitham then was arrested and charged with operating under the influence. He later released on bail.
