A 16-year-old is in an Odessa hospital after sliding into a telephone pole.
State Troopers say he lost control of his car right before it happened.
The teen hit a power pole at 16th and Polaris Avenue around 9 p.m. Tuesday night.
The pole was completely knocked over.
The teen was taken to the hospital but we don't know how badly he was hurt.
State Troopers are ticketing him for failure to control his speed and for not having a driver's license.
