However, due to heavy fog it was not possible to use the air ambulance - and he was instead taken by ambulance to Salisbury District Hospital.
The road was closed by police between St James' Common and Foyle Hill while recovery work was carried out.
BT were also at the scene to deal with the fallen telegraph pole.
The driver is expected to spent the night in hospital, but he is conscious and breathing.
