WAUSHARA COUNTY (WAOW) -- A Stevens Point area teen is in serious condition after police say he lost control of the truck he was driving and hit a power pole.

According to authorities, the crash happened on STH 73 near 10th Ave. in the Town of Oasis shortly after 10:00am Saturday morning. Police say the truck was traveling west on STH 73, crossed the center line, left the roadway, entered the ditch, rolled over, and struck a power pole prior to coming to rest on its wheels.  They say the 18 year old driver was thrown from the vehicle. 

Police say the driver was flown to Theda Clark Medical Center for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening injuries.  

The crash remains under investigation by the Waushara County Sheriff's Office.  However, they believe speed and wet roads appear to have been contributing factors.
