Car Accident Sends Light Pole Crashing into Home

Comments Off

A car crashed into a telephone pole after a chain reaction, car accident. The pole fell and crashed into a house, just a few feet away from the homeowner as she was out on the lanai vacuuming. The home received only minor damage.

The driver crashed into the telephone pole, forcing it to tumble down. The impact was so hard it popped both of the vehicle airbags. Authorities say speed was most likely a factor, considering the speed limit is only 15mph on the road where the accident happened.

The driver, female, was transported by ambulance to the hospital. She didn’t appear to have any serious injuries. The accident is still under investigation, authorities are still trying to determine if the driver will be cited for the accident.
