RCMP believe alcohol was a factor in a weekend crash in Antigonish County that sent a man to hospital and knocked out power.

Crews responded to a single-vehicle collision on Highway 7 in Salt Springs late Saturday night.

A Volkswagen had gone off the road and hit a power pole.

The driver and only person in the vehicle, a 17-year-old Merigomish man, was seriously injured.

Police say they do not know at this point whether his injuries were life-threatening.

The crash investigation continues.
