RIVERSIDE, Ohio (AP) -- Police say a man doing doughnuts in a brand new car struck a power pole in Ohio, sending him and his two children to the hospital.

Authorities tell the Dayton Daily News the man was doing the stunt in a Pontiac G8 in a snowy parking lot in Riverside Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the man apparently lost control and hit a live power pole, knocking the pole over and leaving the car with a crumpled front end.

The man and his two children have been hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.

Police say the man will be cited for reckless operation.
