LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3)-- A 22-year-old man was critically injured early Sunday after crashing his Mazda into a power box and a light pole in the Northwest, according to Metro.

Ryan Small, 22, of Las Vegas crashed his 1998 Mazda Protege around 5:25 a.m. on Buffalo Drive near the intersection of Gilmore Avenue, police said. Small was transported to UMC Trauma with critical injuries, according to police.

Evidence at the scene indicates that the Mazda was traveling northbound on Buffalo Drive when the driver lost control, police said.  The car began sliding sideways across the center line into the southbound travel lanes before ultimately striking a power box and light pole, officers said.

Officers shut down the roadway for more than five hours after the crash.

NV Energy spokesman said that the crash did not cause any reported power outage in the area. The crash remains under investigation by police.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
