CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) -- A man was shocked by downed power lines after crashing his car into a utility pole and trying to walk away.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports 19-year-old William Edgar McDonald of Crestview was speeding early Sunday morning when his car spun out of control. The car hit a road sign, went into a ditch and hit the power pole.

A witness told authorities McDonald revved his engine after hitting the pole. He then got out of the car and started walking up a hill when the witness said he tried to warn McDonald of the downed power lines, but McDonald came into contact with them anyway.

FHP says McDonald was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
