Light pole crashes through car after traffic accident

Posted on June 18, 2010 3:05 am under Car Accidents

A Milwaukee grandmother is thankful that an incident with a street lamp did not end in tragedy.

After a crash at Range Line Road and Mequon Road’s intersection, one in which the grandmother and her passengers did not report serious injuries and no serious injuries were reported by the other vehicle, a light pole came crashing through the roof of the car. The original accident saw the grandmother’s vehicle being struck by the other vehicle involved in the crash. Her car continued for a short distance, eventually hitting a light pole. The pole, lingering of a moment, eventually fell through the windshield of the car below it. The grandmother was saved in the incident, sitting only inches away from where the light pole struck the car.

No one was injured in either the crash between the cars or light pole.
