PITTSBURG — A two-vehicle wreck left one person with minor injuries and a utility pole down on Tuesday.
At approximately 9:25 a.m., Pittsburg Police Department, Pittsburg Fire Department and Crawford County EMS responded to the intersection of Rouse and Jefferson Street for a two vehicle injury wreck.

According to a release from the police department, a 2005 Ford Mustang driven by 24-year-old Aaron Davis of Carthage, Missouri, was traveling south on Rouse behind a 2002 Chevy 15 passenger van driven by 40-year-old John Bankston of Frontenac.

Bankston allegedly slowed to make a right turn onto Jefferson Street and Davis rear ended Bankston’s vehicle, according to the release. Because of the impact of the crash, Bankston’s vehicle was pushed into a power pole causing the pole to break.

According to the release, one of the three passengers in Bankston’s vehicle, 34-year-old Richard Morrsion of Pittsburg, was transported to Ascension Via Christi Hospital by CRCO EMS with minor injuries.
