A teenager was not seriously hurt after crashing his car into two utility poles in Madison.

The collision happened Wednesday morning on Gallatin Pike near Roosevelt Avenue.

Officials on the scene said the 18-year-old was traveling northbound when he claims someone cut him off, causing him to swerve into the poles.

The impact of the crash split one of the poles in half.

The teen suffered a head injury but he refused treatment at the scene.

All lanes of Gallatin Pike have reopened, but crews will have to install new poles.
