Rising waters may have caused a one car crash Wednesday morning and sent one man to the hospital.

Police say 37-year old Allen Pruitt was driving on 287 East to take the ramp toward Windthorst when he hit a pool of standing water. Officers say his car hydroplaned and slammed into a metal pole on the side of the ramp.

Officers say the car came to a stop but then rushing water pushed it into a nearby ditch filled with water. Emergency crews took Pruitt to United Regional where he was treated for his injuries and released.
