A.C.T. Van Hits Utility Pole, Rolls Over
August 25, 2010
Lunch time traffic on West Jefferson Street was interrupted last Friday for a single vehicle crash.
About 11:30 an A.C.T. Transportation Van was traveling west on Jefferson Street and in front of Quick’s Lanes Bowling Alley. The vehicle broke off a utility pole and rolled onto the driver’s side.
A witness told Plymouth Police Officer Chris Miller, “The van just drifted of the street to the right and struck the utility pole.”
The female driver was wearing a seat belt and was able to exit the vehicle prior to emergency crews arriving on the scene. She was back-boarded and loaded into the ambulance by Plymouth Paramedics.
Officer Miller said she sustained minor injuries.
Traffic on West Jefferson Street was interrupted from 11:30 to 1:30 as NIPSCO crews had to replace the broken pole.
