Thomasville, Georgia--  This story proves why tractor trailers have signs warning they make wide right turns.

A semi pushed a Dodge Neon into a light pole in Thomasville around 10:00 Wednesday morning. It happened at the intersection of Jackson and Madison streets.

Police say the truck began turning right onto Madison but didn't see the Neon tucked in next to it. "This intersection has had quite a few accidents within the past few days of the same manner. Semis just don't seem to have enough turning radius here with three lanes and one thin area," says Thomasville Police Officer, Andy Bozeman.

Fortunately, both of the drivers involved escaped unhurt, but the Neon needs a lot of work on its passenger side. The driver of the semi was charged with making an improper turn.
