An Orland man who reportedly was not wearing his seatbelts sustained major injuries when his vehicle hit a power pole on Thursday.

According to the Willows Area Office of the California Highway Patrol, at about 7:10 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20, Miguel Ibanes, 43, of Orland, was driving a 2001 Nissan Sentra north on County Road M, north of County Road 33.

For unknown reasons, he allowed the Sentra to drift off the right shoulder to the east and strike a metal power pole with the Sentra’s front end.

According to CHP Officer Taylor, Ibanes sustained major injuries and was transported by ambulance for treatment.

Alcohol is not suspected to have been a factor in this accident and no one was arrested.
