HOBART | A driver was airlifted Tuesday morning to a South Bend hospital after a single-vehicle crash on County Line Road between Hobart and Union Township.

Tim Beach, chief of Union Fire Rescue, said the driver apparently was going south on County Line Road in the area of Porter County Road 500 North when the car crossed the road and hit a utility pole.

It took Union Fire Rescue and Hobart firefighters 45 minutes to an hour to extricate the driver.

The driver, who was the only person in the car, was sent by helicopter to South Bend Memorial Hospital. Beach said the driver's injuries were not life threatening.

Further information about the driver and the accident wasn't available.

Beach could not say what caused the accident, but said the road in that area was icy.
