Driver Crashes Vehicle Into Utility Pole


A driver involved in a lunch hour collision knocked out electricity for several homes on Friday.

Police say a man driving a silver Chevrolet pick-up told them he fell asleep driving down 19th street.

He collided into a utility pole and mailboxes in several yards before going back onto the road.

Officers cited the driver for driving an unsafe speed and for having an invalid license.

Power to two homes were knocked out when the utility pole was damaged.
