A man in his 20s is in critical condition after a car slammed into a pole on Don Mill Road Wednesday night.

Emergency crews were called to the area near Deerford Road, south of Finch Avenue East, just after 10 p.m.

Police said the driver was trapped inside the vehicle.

Once crews were able to extract him from the car, he was rushed to a trauma centre with life-threatening injuries.

Four other people were inside the car but none of them were injured.

Southbound Don Mills was closed in the area for several hours but has since reopened.

There has been no word on what caused the crash.

Police continue to investigate.
