Posted: Updated:

Collins Road was closed for about three hours for repairs after a New Mexico man crashed into a utility pole.

The crash happened on Collins Road near Rockwell Drive at 12:07 a.m. Tuesday. Officials closed the road near Rockwell Drive and F Avenue NorthEast around 7:00 a.m. Tuesday for electrical repairs.

36-year-old Matthew Crowder of Albuquerque, N.M. was at the wheel. Police said Crowder was taken to a Cedar Rapids hospital with serious injuries, but they think he will survive. 

Slippery conditions or speed could have attributed to the crash, police said, but there was not alcohol found in the Crowder's system. They are still investigating.
