CRESTVIEW, Fla. -- 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.
    
Northwest Florida Daily News reports 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.
    
FHP says McDonald was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
