Car slams into a utility pole

July 2, 2004

Albany-- The collision brought down power lines and traffic lights, and tied up traffic on a major east-west artery.

A Dodge Neon crashed into a utility pole at the intersection of Oakridge and South Jackson. The pole fell, along with power lines and traffic signals which then got tangled around a nearby tractor trailer. Police shut down the Oakridge Bridge, and that backed up traffic on the east side.

The driver was taken to Phoebe Putney Hospital, but her injuries were not life threatening.
