Paris, NY (WIBX) - Oneida County Sheriffs say the driver of a log truck looked down while driving and lost control of his truck.

Driver Michael McDonough of Vernon Center was ejected from the vehicle after it slid sideways through a utility pole and rolled over, eventually righting itself.

McDonough was sent to the hospital with internal injuries. The log truck was wrapped in live power wires which had to be removed by National Grid.

Larson Road was closed for several hours.

The accident is still under investigation.
